Sometime between the ending of the Game 6 OT thriller and during Gregg Popovich's tear-inducing postgame press conference, Ice Cube was performing an all-time hip hop classic live with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Fortunately, we can watch the powerful and nostalgic performance above — really a chilling, must-see when you see Ice Cube's raw energy mixed with the soulful grooves provided by Questlove & Co. The Roots bring out the song's iconic notes with their usual jazzy twist, giving the song a fresh 2013 feel. Even Fallon himself set the tone with an extra level of genuine excitement than usual as he introduced Ice Cube. Not much else to say except, press play above.
