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

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

Brand new Ciara and she’s getting her sexy on…
Download: Ciara – “I Run It”
Wooooo, Ciara’s getting her Janet on here – I’ll be damned. Unsure whether or not this will be on Ci-Ci’s new album, but it’s definitely new. Having never really been that into any of Ciara’s previous material, I must say – she’s impressing me a lot with this new music. Loving this sexy, sultry slow jam, and still think “Ride” is a massive jam (despite it’s ghetto ass video – although, I’m not really mad about that either lol). Sounds like Basic Instinct is shaping up to be a pretty good LP!
Peace, Love & Ciara
P.s The song left me no choice but to use that picture. Yeah…

Brand new Bruno Mars, off his upcoming EP It’s Better You Don’t Understand…
First up, I’m so glad to see Bruno Mars doing so well – his success with B.o.B has been phenomenal and everyone I speak to says “yea, that guy who’s on the hook for “Nothing On You” is dope, is he coming out with anything?” – well, yes, of course he is! This track, featuring the Cee-Lo, who sings & spits like there’s no tomorrow, as well as Mr Bobby Ray (who we must congratulate for going Number 1 on the Billboard chart in the US – massive). This tune is dope. No question.
Peace, Love & Bruno Mars
P.s Label tore down the stream link in record time.

I say ‘new track’ but what I really mean is: we FINALLY have the full version to this…
Download: TiRon – “60901”
Such a massive, massive track – Oddisee takes care of that beat nicely. Damn. TiRon remains one of the most exciting young emcee’s to me. “60901” aka Kankakee, Illinois, comes off his upcoming Mustard mixtape. Need that ish now.
Peace, Love & TiRon

This is going to be the last leak I post from Distant Relatives…
Download: Nas & Damian Marley – “Patience”
I have said this before, but I will say it again – this album is going to be C-L-A-S-S-I-C. Every thing I’ve heard from it so far has been impeccably good. I’m sure this sample is way old and very well known to some, but I only know it off Theophilus London’s This Charming Mixtape, I loved it on there – love it even more here. Big f*cking tune.
Peace, Love, Nas & Damian Marley
