For the last two years, The Roots have served as the house band on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” They have not really had time to drop a new song, but they did just that by dropping “Champion,” a theme song for the NBA Finals.
The song itself if a throwback to their original hip-hop roots, no pun intended, rather than their sound from their 2014 album “…and then shoot your cousin.” It is a pretty interesting track and should bring a different vibe to the Finals, which are slated to begin on June 2.
They have gotten away from their musical endeavors as of late, but this is a pretty good way to reintroduce the world to The Roots. Let’s just hope they keep this going well into the future.
