The Roots Call On God In New Video, Get Sent Straight To Voicemail

The Roots’ Black Thought plays a modern day Travis Bickle in their new video for “Dear God 2.0.” Like De Niro’s famed Taxi Driver character, he drives around the city, ferrying a menagerie of low-lifes and tragic characters to their destinations. All the while, he’s busy lamenting the fact that God’s not returning his (or anyone else’s) calls. Jim James adds the same soulful refrain as the original Monsters Of Folk track from the backseat. Quality video, but it pains us to see ?uestlove so dour. Feels like something is not right with the world. (Via: Vulture)
