After more than two years in NYC I finally get a chance to visit the Apollo Theater. Not only that, I get to see my favorite band and hip hop group, The Roots, completely kill it. They were absolutely amazing as usual. The show was a much better experience than the one at Radio City a couple years ago. Joy (new found friend), Blazey and I walk in around 11:30 and they are already up on stage a few songs in. The level of energy they have is mind blowing – it just never stops. If you ever get a chance to see them live do it. No-one does it better live than them. I hope i'm still going to see them 15 years from now.
Oh, and and for my roots heads, where did Hub go? And when did the dude w/ the sax and the other cat with the tuba join up? The tuba was a perfect addition.
Black thought. He is the best live rapper period. When the audio is clear in the venue you can hear every single word he says. He changes up some of the lyrics to every song every time i've seen them.
One of Blazey's dreams was to boo someone at the Apollo. Well during the band call-outs Quest asked everyone to boo him. Aaron loved it (sorry comron, blazey said you also had the same dream as a child)
