Questlove is a man of many talents. As a producer, drummer, chef and plenty more, we don’t get to hear his plethora of celebrity stories that he has stored away in his own mental vault. The Roots drummer has had run-ins with the likes of Prince, Diddy, Heavy D, Maya Rudolph, Dave Chappelle, Jazzy Jeff, LL Cool J, Eddie Murphy, D’Angelo, Salma Hayek and that’s just to name a few.
Questlove teamed up with Okayplayer to give us the art of storytelling as a holiday gift while illustrator and animator, Hectah used the perfect animation to brings the story to life. The first installment, called Storyville, will focus on Questlove’s experienced with Patti LaBelle. She promised him an extensive dinner including dishes like fried chicken, collard greens, and candied yams. However, LaBelle has a tough time following through, no matter how many times Quest tried.
