Much like its Philly-born genre-bending namesakes, The Roots, you never know quite what to expect from the eclectic RP line-up. There’s a lilt towards stellar hip hop, charismatic rap, and soulful funk, but that doesn’t stop a few innovative experimental fringe acts creeping in to rock the mikes. Highlights for this iteration include recently returned ’90s soul sensation D'Angelo, gritty Louisiana-born trap rapper Kevin Gates and the world’s premier art-pop band, the irrepressible Deerhoof.
