This is an amazing record! Most live hiphop recordings don't sound good to me, but The Roots take it to the next level! There is funk on this record, soul, jazz, a basssolo ("We've got my man Leonard Hubbard on bass"), a drum vs mc battle, and Jill Scott on "You got me", who is simply stunning. One moment they're playing hiphop and another one jazz Another great thing is that you can actually hear what a great player Hub is, on studiotracks he likes to be in the back, be on this record he does a lot more! You check it out, even if you're not into hip-hop!
