If the Roots weren’t so goddamn creative (their new one, How I Got Over, drops Tuesday) they could make a fortune as the best cover band in the world, which they kind of already are with things like this amazing version of NWA’s “Straight Outta Compton.” This was recorded when Ice Cube was on Jimmy Fallon a couple weeks ago, during the pre-taping audience warm-up. Somewhere, someone is now planning an NWA Broadway musical (adapted from the biopic). (TheDailyWhat)
