"Everything was done (the album) except that, I had one request, there was a band from Philadelphia called The Roots. I needed to get on a train to Philly from New York - This is what I need, this is the missing ingredient". - Erykah Badu
Two ground breaking artists, two amazing nights, and a history of connected music. Erykah Badu (June 23rd) and The Roots (June 30th) are set to take Vancouver by storm but, shows in Vancouver are not the only thing tying these two artists together. In a Vancouver Sun feature done by Francois Marchand, the tale of their past comes to light.
"The two acts have been closely intertwined since their respective beginnings, and it all came to a magnificent confluence with single You Got Me, from The Roots’ 1999 cornerstone album Things Fall Apart."
