LargeUp x Okayplayer TV: Christopher Ellis x Mr. Vegas x The Roots

Words by Michellee Nelson~OkayPlayer Holiday-Christopher-Ellis

We’re back with another memorable performance from the OkayPlayer Holiday Jam with The Roots. This time, Christopher Ellis, son of reggae crooner Alton Ellis (and an established singer in his own right), took the stage with Mr. Vegas and The Roots to perform the rocksteady favorite, “I’m Still in Love with You.” Depending on your age, you might be more familiar with the version that Sean Paul and Sasha re-popularized back in ’04 on SP’s album Dutty Rock, but the senior Ellis penned the original track back in 1967.

Watch Christopher Ellis and the West Indian massive of the The Roots groove to “I’m Still in Love with You” as Mr. Vegas joins in to mash it up withย “Hot Gyal Today.” While your at it, check out the rest of the bashment segment of the Holiday Jam with Bunji Garlin, Addis Pablo of “Suns of Dub, and more from Mr. Vegas below.
