The Roots perform onstage at The Edison Ballroom on October 26, 2011 in New York City.
Technically, The Roots work for NBC. But there's no sense of corporate obligation or directive to promote the winningest band in hip-hop here on Nonstop Sound. Really, they don't need our help at all.

To build some tension for the band's 13th release, The Roots are rolling out a new mini-vid every Tuesday.
