The Music: The Roots ft. John Legend – Doin’ It Again (Live)


The Root’s album ‘How I Got Over’ has been accompanying my working hours today. Along with The Day and a few other tracks this is one of my favourite. Just so motivating.

This live performance is so energised. Makes me want to go ‘hard in the paint’* which is perfect as I have a ton of work to do *marches off purposefully*.

*Hard in the paint – A basketball phrase recently explained to me by my bud @jossmart and I promised to use in a sentence. Apparently refers to playing hard in the painted area under the basketball hoop which is of course totally the same as me shuffling through my ever growing to do list…

Amongst many other things, I'm a 30-something contemplative Londoner making the daily commute between contentment and ambition.When not blogging, I'm using my talents for good as communications director at Gingerland and co-founder of Love Harlem.
