The Roots are the hardest working band of our era! Watch them as they rehearse for The Roots Picnic in their studios at NBC. Although they are on break from the Jimmy Fallon Show, they frequently use that time to tour.
 
So they have just gotten in from a show on the west coast and on this day they begin the first day of rehearsals for the Picnic with De La Soul. Watch their amazing process. And, Questlove even takes a second to break down some little known facts about the making of the Roots Picnic!
 
Make sure you also check out Episode 1 of the walk through of the venue and Episode 2 with one of the DJs spinning at the Picnic.
