If there are two things about the Roots that are unf**kwitable, it's their live prowess and curation abilities, both of which are on display this weekend at the 5th Annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia. We'll be there checking out all the acts, including Wale, Kid Cudi, James Murphy, St. Vincent, Danny Brown and the titular group, but to get you in the mood, we've compiled a few songs from nearly every act in one handy Spotify playlist below and on our Spotify app (updated daily, y'all!). Yeah, it's just a sample of the insane amount of music we'll hear this weekend, but feel free to explore the festival's diverse acts or use this to soundtrack your Philly road trip.
