Before she sang about her “Next Lifetime” on her debut album, Erykah Badu could be found hanging out in the studios and rehearsal space with The Roots; at the tender age of twenty, producer Khari Mateen was invited to be a producer on Game Theory (2006), which opened up the door for his work on Sundance Channel’s “Brick City” and Jill Scott’s “The Light of the Sun”; and the infamous Soulquarians collective (featuring Talib Kweli, Common, D’Angelo, Dilla and more)
was named by Roots co-founder ?uestlove. The band’s openness and willingness to collaborate with artists of varying talent levels has made them a model among their peers and strengthened the quality of artistic output many fans and critics have enjoyed during the past two decades.
Join poet and recording artist Ursula Rucker, DJ Phsh of the Illvibe Collective, and musician and producer Khari Mateen, for a robust discussion on the power of The Roots’ touch in the music industry, moderated by artist, entrepreneur, and event producer Stacey "Flygirrl" Wilson.
Limited seating available. RSVPs strongly encouraged.
