Roots co-founder Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson is getting ready to drop a memoir which will be titled ‘Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove.’ The book will come out through Grand Central Publishing and should be ready for June 18th.
Questlove offers some autobiographical details combined with his experience of hip hop culture and interactions with other musicians. “Questlove tells his own story while tackling some of the lates, the greats, the fakes, the philosophers, the heavyweights, and the true originals of the music world. He digs deep into the album cuts of his life, as well as pivotal moments in black art, hip hop, and culture,” reads the publisher’s description.
The book also includes Questlove’s take on the current state of hip hop and his views will be spread out through “some (many) random (and not) musings,” according to the publisher.
The book is already available for pre-order through Amazon.com and it will be available as both an audio book and in an electronic format.
