The Roots Buy a Beat from Lee G and Delon Sampling Joanna Newsom

My friends, Lee G and Delon, have sold a beat to their song "Right On" to The Roots for the band's new album How I Got Over.
Delon made the beat for their album, Look @ the Tree, released last year, which you can purchase online here. 
Lee G will be performing at Drexel's Late Night Series open mic tomorrow (Thursday) night in West Philly at Creese Lobby (33rd & Chestnut Sts.) Sign-ups to perform are at 8 PM if you want to perform and the show starts at 8:30 PM. 
 This is a video ?uestlove posted on Twitter of him working on the beat. The song samples a Joanna Newsom song "Book of Right On" from the Milk-Eyed Mender.
 
She might fly in to Philly to record her voice for the song on The Roots album.
