The Roots have been providing positive vibes to the City of Brotherly Love since the group's inception in 1987. The group was started by Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter and Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, who helped to establish the group's distinct flare. The group's jazzy and eclectic approach to hip-hop have kept us listening for quite some time.
