Win Tickets to See The Roots and John Legend on December 7!

Earlier this month, I dropped some hot info that I'm in cahoots with HP and Beats by Dr. Dre, and while I'm reaping a lot of the benefits of a sweet new system and headphones (yeah, shameless plug here again), I also mentioned that you lucky little beasts would be privy to get in on the action too. Here's the first round of radness, and yo, it's a good one.

 

The roots

 

HP is all about music these days, and duh, so am I. They recently hooked me up with an ENVY 14 Beats Edition to test out and I'm digging the machine like a boss! Not only is HP making music sound good again on a computer, thanks to Beats Audio, but photos, movies and social networking is a breeze with Windows Live Essentials. To learn more about HP PCs with Beats Audio, hit this link hard.

 

So that's the legal mumbo jumbocities... below is the stuff you need to know if you want a pair of tickets to this exclusive, invite-only concert. Color us excited!

Beginning today through the first of July, the series features the release of two singles each week. First up is Nas' take on Slick Rick's Hey Young World, while The Swell Season's rendition of the 70s disco hit, Young Hearts Run Free by Candi Staton will be let loose on Thursday May 27. Details regarding the remaining artists, Passion Pit and The Kills, and their song choices will complete the current roster of releases and be announced in the weeks to come.

 
Here's the tracks to look forward to. I'm most psyched to hear
