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

While inside sources tell us that they haven’t turned the album in yet, The Roots’ How I Got Over has a November 17th street date. They did, however, already shoot a video for the first single and title track “How I Got Over” with BBGUN. Here’s a teaser. We’ll release the full video tonight or Thursday. The Roots are busy preparing for tonight’s VH1 Hip Hop Honors where Black Thought and a certain rapper from Detroit will open the show with a tribute to LL Cool J’s classic “Rock The Bells.” This year’s HHH celebrates Def Jam’s 25 year anniversary. – shamz [Okayplayer]
