Tip caught up with us after the show and opened up about everything from the Irving Plaza incident with Troy Ave, to his role in the Roots remake and his new beautiful baby girl.

After this weekend's festival, the famous group made the major announcement that the Roots Picnic will be expanding to New York City.

When Alex Haley‘s remake of the Roots debuted on television in 1977, it sent a shockwave through America.
