Ludacris and The Roots recorded an acoustic rendition of the Atlanta rapper’s single ‘What’s Your Fantasy’ while backstage at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this week (April 1). Click above to watch.
This mellow version of the track, which was originally released in 2000, replaces the original’s heavy bass and tweaked-out synths with live guitar, double bass, drums and piano. The Roots’ Questlove can be seen multi-tasking during the performance, playing both the drums and piano at the same time.
The Roots have featured as Fallon’s house band since the programme’s inception last year. Prior to making the move, they served on the comedian’s previous chat show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Luda, meanwhile, can currently be seen in the new movie Fast & Furious 7, and recently appeared as a guest on the Justin Bieber edition of US show Comedy Central Roast, where he mocked the pop star by joking, “He may have turned 21, but Justin will always be a baby to me, since babies [urinate] everywhere and never know when to shut up.”
