The Roots delivered a fantastic performance at the 2nd annual Bud Light Jam Session at SXSW in Austin, Texas, on Saturday (March 18). Several artists joined the Philadelphian band onstage including Brandy, T.I., Rae Sremmurd, Method Man and Redman.

According to Okayplayer, the illadelph crew kicked off their performance with Rae Sremmurd as the rap duo performed “No Type,” “Swang” and “Black Beatles.” On the R&B side, Brandy sung a five-song medley of her classic hits.

Another highlight was T.I.’s performance. Although it was brief, Tip managed to get the crowd hyped with his set that included renditions of “What You Know” and “Bring ‘Em Out.” Finally, Method Man and Redman delivered an energetic performance of their classic hits, as the crowd sang along to Meth’s hits, “All I Need” and “M.E.T.H.O.D. Man.”

Also, The Roots paid tribute to the late Chuck Berry who passed away on Saturday. Guitarist “Captain” Kirk Douglas performed a rousing rendition of the rock ‘n’ roller’s classic tune, “Johnny B. Goode.”
