    The city of Philadelphia honored The Roots, with a giant public mural on the back wall of a school. The Roots have truly arrived –even though they've been here for a while- when their home city shows them love in such a way.

    The city's Mural Arts Program unveiled the painting earlier this month.

    "This is one of the greatest moments of our career," said drummer Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson. "I've forever driven the streets of Philadelphia wondering, when are we getting our mural?"

    Done.
