Win A 5th Annual Roots Picnic Poster Autographed By The Roots


The 5th Annual Roots Picnic is still fresh in the minds of many despite having taken place over a month ago thanks to our recap videos (Watch Full Event Recap | Wale | De La Soul | Rakim | Major Lazer). The videos do an amazing job of capturing the spirit and energy of the two-day event.

We took some limited edition Roots Picnic posters and set them in front of the guys in The Roots who each took a Sharpie and gladly left their John Hancock in black ink. Now we want to get them in your hands!

The ‘Coming 2 America’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack & ‘The Rhythm Of Zamunda’ Are Out Now

Featuring Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga, Alpha P, Davido and many more.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.
