MP3 & Video: tUnE-YarDs & The Roots Perform “Gangsta”

Merill Garbus’ pain in the ass to spell tUnE-YarDs made their television debut last night on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”. Fallon continues his late night buzz dominance with hipster and hoodrat friendly artists coupled with The Roots making each performance better. I had “Gangsta”, the best song of their sophomore album w h o k i l l blaring in my car the other night and my girlfriend had to do a Google search to believe my claim that Garbus was actually a woman. She has a glass-shattering voice that sounds incredible while she beatboxes over reggae beats, horns, and digital loops to create pure rhythmic mayhem. This is one of the best late night acts of the year, and the cherry on top is Black Thought performing a killer verse halfway through the song. Grab the rip download and the video below:
