Back in 2007, The Roots embarked on one of their most ambitious (and amazing) tours as they hosted the first ever VH1 Hip Hop Honors tour.  Joined by legends MC Lyte and Bid Daddy Kane, The Roots crafted one hell of a setlist, paying homage to classic hip-hop.  In fact, this tour was the first and only time The Roots rocked an entire 2.5 hour set without performing a single Roots song (this night happened to be one of the few exceptions from the tour as they performed Proceed and Clones, with a rare guest spot from Malik B).  There are way too many highlights from the show to list them all, but a definite “oh shit!” moment was Black Thought flawlessly impersonating everyone in the Wu Tang Clan on Protect Ya Neck.  This tour was also the unleashing of Black Thought’s epic cover of Men @ Work, which is breath control at its finest.  The setlist speaks for itself, so check it out below and enjoy our exclusive recording of the entire 2.5 hour concert below- this one is not to be missed!

Earlier this year, Revive Da Live put on a special tribute show on the anniversary of Guru’s passing.  The show was a tribute to the music of Guru, where a 19 piece big band performed Gangstarr & Jazzmatazz classics alongside the likes of Jeru The Damaja, Masta Ace, Greenspan, Akrobatik, Craig G, Peter Gunz, John Robinson, Lord Finesse, OC, Greg Nice, Radydar Ellis, Roy Hargrove and DJ Premier.  The band was amazing and absolutely nailed every beat.  Below are some highlights from the evening from our exclusive recording.
