2008_11_roots.jpgThe legendary hip-hop group The Roots have been well-respected for so long that they can provide instant credibility to whomever they work with. But that might prove to be a little easier when they were the house band for Jay-Z than it will be next to new Late Night host Jimmy Fallon. Various sources are reporting that Roots leader ?uestlove said in a radio interview over the weekend that they will be the house band for Fallon when he takes over for Conan O'Brien next year. That would make The Roots the first hip-hop band in the studio nightly alongside a major talk show host. Conan has gotten America to accept a man named La Bamba into their hearts--can Jimmy do the same for one known as "Black Thought"? TBD
