The Roots Back Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter For "Rapper's Delight"

The Philly crew played backing band during the Mayor's inaugural party.

During the inaugural party last night for his second term, Mayor Michael Nutter performed The Sugarhill Gang's “Rapper’s Delight” with backing band The Roots.

Four years ago, Nutter rapped the classic cut with ?uestlove serving as the DJ for her performance. This year, the full Roots crew, who provided the soundtrack during the amped up performance, joined him at Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Watch the performance below.
