Roots Picnic is put on by beloved hip-hop band The Roots and annually features some of the top talent in the music industry. Last year, the hometown love was flourishing, with Meek Mill and Lil Uzi Vert both hitting the stage.
2016's lineup also included, Blood Orange, Kaytranada, Kehlani, Jidenna, Metro Boomin, Migos, Anderson .Paak, Willow Smith and DJ Khaled, who brought out half the industry.
Will Smith brought the nostalgia back with a performance of "Summertime."
The one sour note would be Future's performance. That Atlanta rapper had major sound issues, leaving both the rapper and fans pissed.
