have photographed all of The Roots Picnics since its inception but never one of the rehearsals until 2012. Lucky for me this rehearsal took place hours before the actually performance and before Nas' manager told me he doesn't like cameras around. Me being me, I managed to get a few snaps in! After that I recorded on my audio on my iPhone.s - Mel D Cole
Chris is a big hip hop stan and a really big Rakim stan from what I've heard. I wish I could tell you he was looking back at me giving me that "OH SHIT DID YOU HEAR WHAT RAKIM JUST SAID LOOK" but I can't deny or confirm this! It's a secret!
