John Legend & The Roots’ ‘Hard Times’
The following video does not require much explanation. The Roots — one of the last hip-hop conglomerates with a hand close to Native Tongue, soul and funk pulses. John Legend — one of the most charismatic male vocalists of the 21st century. With every preview offered, the September 21st release date of their collaborative outing, Wake Up, can’t come soon enough. Check out the live studio performance of Baby Huey’s ‘Hard Times’, just one of the many classic soul covers that compose what is sure to be one of the year’s most exciting records.
