Q-Tip, The Roots, Talib Kweli perform "Electric Relaxation" at Okayplayer Holiday Jam [Video]

A Tribe Called Quest's "Electric Relaxation" is one of those tracks I'll simply never tire of listening to, a track shot through with the spirit of hip hop as the mischievous rap gods intended it, so you can imagine my excitement when I heard this latest rendition of the track, a live offering from Q-Tip himself, music virtuosos The Roots and the one and only Talib Kweli.

The performance of the classic Tribe track was the most remarkable of many highlights from the annual Roots Jam in NYC last month, which also played host to guests such as A$AP Rocky, Kids These Days, Sonnymoon and Rahzel, and the footage below will make any hip hop fan wish they'd been there. A dream line-up turned the track into an extended jam with the help of live sousaphone and their varied vocal talents – and whilst I'd pay anything to hear Phife and Tip tagging in and out as they did on the original, this re-imagined version comes a close-second.

Check it out below, and scroll down for some more highlights from the special event.
