First off, I’d like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Black Thought of The Roots for hooking me up with VIP passes to this year’s Roots Picnic in Philadelphia. In case you missed it, I had the opportunity to interview the legendary MC (seen here) about a month ago! *ShmurdaVoice*
As long as I’ve been covering Hip Hop events, this was actually my first time attending a Roots Picnic. Despite the two hour bus ride from New York City, the heat beaming down my back and the gigantic crowd of people (we were literally packed like sardines) – it was an amazing experience. A diverse crowd, second hand inhalation (if you know what I mean), good music and dope artists; all made for one helluva good time.
