“The Christmas Song” (Live On Fallon) (Video)

    For the Roots’ latest act on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the band wasn’t backing the show’s latest musical guest. Instead, the Legendary took center stage to deliver a fantastic cover of “The Christmas Song” with frontman Black Thought handling the entirety of the vocals. Even though most of us are constantly craving new raps from the superbly talented MC, his performance here displays that he can sing pretty damn well, too. It also shows that maybe we should be getting an album’s worth of covers of Christmas songs from the Roots. Or maybe just an EP…or a few loose mp3s. Come on, guys, it’s the holidays!
