FUSE TV - The Roots Bring Rae Sremmurd, Brandy, T.I. & More for Bud Light Jam Session at SXSW

The Roots are famous for their jam sessions that break down genres and bring together artists all in the name of musical friendship and the second Bud Light x The Roots & Friends Jam Session at SXSW 2017 proved the love is stronger than ever. The lineup was already stacked with  RedmanMethod ManCyHi the Prynce, Jidenna, Shakey Graves, Cloves and Nick Grant on the bill. But the hip-hop band brought multiple surprises and further proved the extent of their legacy to Austin's 800 Congress.

After openers FRENSHIP and James Hersey wooed the crowd with a pair of feel-good jams each, The Roots quickly took the stage and were already bringing surprises for the night's first guest. "I got some friends I'd like to come to the stage," Roots' main rapper Black Thought told the crowd before bringing out  Rae Sremmurd. The young duo clearly came to turn up as they jumped right into their performance with Slim Jxmmi ecstatically running to each individual Root member and high-fiving them. "We just came off a plane from Vegas," the duo told the crowd. "But we had to show love to our brothers." The guys finished the set with their No. 1 hit "Black Beatles" (which you can watch below), only warming up the crowd for the upcoming slew of surprise cameos that would hit the stage soon enough.
