By way of some riddles on Twitter, Questlove revealed some of the top performers who will appear on the lineup for this year's Roots Picnic in Philadelphia in June. So far, the bill features Gary Clark Jr., Joey Bada$$, Grimes, Robert Glasper, Naughty By Nature, Hit-Boy, and The Gaslamp Killer. It also looks like Trinidad Jame$ might be on there, too, while Questo and The Roots will no doubt perform several times throughout the festival.
