The Best Moments From Roots Picnic


What’s up, guys? frazier here for Complex News. Terrible weather may have cut the 11th annual
Roots Picnic short, but attendees of the music festival were able to catch a few dope performances
anyway. DJ Drama got the crowd hype and brought out
T.I. and Lil Baby, but I’d say fans were probably most excited to see the North Philly legend
himself, Freeway. Philly freezer of course had to let his time-tested
classic “What We Do” ring off in his hometown. A live episode of Philly legend Questlove’s
Pandora podcast, Questlove Supreme, was recorded at the Podcast stage in front of a packed
audience. Questlove was joined by Marc Lamont Hill,
Phonte, and radio host Laiya St. Clair. The group entertained the live audience by
discussing Jill Stein, Drake and Pusha-T’s feud and Kanye West’s antics. Philly native Lil Uzi Vert, was the last act
to take the stage before the headliner. Wearing red leather pants paired with a matching
harness, Uzi delivered a powerful performance that included his smash hit “XO Tour Llif3.” But unfortunately, all good things must come
to an end. In this case, a premature end. About 10 minutes into Dave Chappelle and the
Roots’ headlining set, the sky unleashed a massive storm, which forced the show to end. That was bad news for 2 Chainz fans, as the
Atlanta rapper was on the bill to join the headliners, but the show ended as soon as
Dave Chappelle introduced him. That’s the news on Roots Picnic, but for
