One of the most memorable verses off The Roots album Do You Want More?!!!??! is Dice Raw’s verse on “The Lesson Pt.1”. During Grammy week, The Roots held their 9th annual Jam Session in LA, where they invite numerous musical guests to join them for a jam session, performing their hits and other classics. It’s pretty unlikely you’ll ever hear Questlove rapping and/or freestyling. During the Roots Jam Session, he filled in for Dice Raw for a rare performance of “The Lesson Pt.1”, rapping his entire verse and drumming with one hand. Questlove even freestyles at the end, which was hilarious to say the least. That’s one hell of an assist for Black Thought who usually does everything on vocals regardless of who’s present. Questlove filled in admirably.
