Questlove Remembers When Prince Replaced Him With Finding Nemo

As a co-founder of The Roots and one of hip-hop’s biggest nerds, Questlove has surely seen a lot in his career. One of the craziest stories to float around involves him, Prince, and a DVD of Finding Nemo.

For his birthday yesterday (January 20), Questlove fully fleshed out this crazy story to Okayplayer in an animated video. He went from buying 10 tickets for friends to see Prince to sitting right next to the stage, but only in exchange for DJing a private party after the show. Prince wasn’t feeling Quest’s selection of Fela Kuti songs and effectively replaced him with a DVD of Finding Nemo. 

Watch the whole crazy story unfurl above.
