For a long time, The Roots were considered underdogs. Dedicated fans railed against the industry's continued indifference to Black Thought's lyrical dominance, Questlove's visionary sonics and the band's grandiose live shows. Now that Philly's favorite sons are 13 albums deep, rocking on the Fallon show every night and getting Grammy love, no one can front on them anymore. Their shows still have the drive to amaze like the old days, thanks to years of improvement as a unit. The first live band Jay-Z ever used makes its first visit to the Fillmore.
