Yesterday Questlove of the legendary Roots crew sat down with Billboard for an indepth Q&A – peep part 1 up top and then parts 2-5 after the jump. Also, peep the last video where he gives one lucky person a chance to win a signed drumhead.
As a maaaaaaasssshoooosive Roots fan and of course, Questlove fan, I’m about to press play on this myself – so, can’t comment too tough on what he talks about, but you know who this is? This guy is always mad interesting to listen to. Enjoy.
Peace, Love & Questlove

I don’t get why folks are hating on this track? She sounds incredible on it, don’t ever get it twisted, Miss Aguilera is one of the best singers of our generation. She’s been working it out for over 10 years and of course, new artists have come through – but that’s ok? I never understood when people act like there isn’t enough room for everyone? It’s ok to like GaGa AND Rihanna AND Christina AND Beyonce – you don’t have to choose.
Peace, Love & Christina Aguilera

Still love this track. Definitely one of Keys’ best tracks to date.
Peace, Love & Alicia Keys

I fondly remember meeting Ra-Re Valverde in London back in 2008 – at the time PinBoard was still a fledging blog and Miss Valverde blessed us with some time for an interview. We had a great chat covering just about everything – music, life, relationships, the future and more – if you haven’t already, take a dive into our archives and read the interview.
…But back to the subject at hand – Ra-Re sent over her brand new video for a new track called “Because” – a stirring, haunting track featuring Valverde’s distinguishable vocals. I re-visit her debut album frequently, simply because I adore her voice so much – this track is a departure from what is featured on A Beautiful Mess – it’s a good departure, I’m loving this.
Peace, Love & Ra-Re Valverde

This is kinda cute – Common interviews Queen Latifah in 60 Seconds, asking random questions like “investigate a creepy sound or hell nah” lol. These two have a great chemistry, cool to see two Hip Hop greats getting along and having so much fun together. I think I may check out their new movie “Just Wright” – may.
Peace, Love, Common & Queen Latifah
