Roots drummer and hip-hop philosopher extraordinaire, Ahmir ‘Questlove‘ Thompson, has finally decided to put his musical journey down on paper and release a memoir entitled Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According To Questlove. The book will explore the development of hip-hop music combined with the tales of Quest’s life story. And if you’re wondering if Quest can really string prose together? Well, no need to worry, he’s employed the help of journalist and New Yorker critic Ben Greenman to co-author the book.
Peep the details below:
The collection is a punch-drunk memoir in which everyone’s favorite Questlove tells his own story while tackling some of the lates, the greats, the fakes and the true originals of the music world. He digs deep into the album cuts of his life, and unearths some pivotal moments in Black music and pop culture. But more than just a series of remembrances Mo’ Meta Blues is a book that also questions the nature of memory and the idea of a post modern Black man saddled with some post-modern Blues. It’s the side wind of a one-of-a-kind mind. It’s a rare gift that gives as well as takes.
