February 28, 2013 |  by  |  Black men doing their thang!, BOOKS  |  Share

    According to Rollingstone ?uestlove Memoir is set to drop this summer:

    Questlove will recount his own experiences in music and cast a wider eye on pop culture in a forthcoming book, Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove. Part memoir, part cultural study, the Roots drummer will touch on growing up in Philadelphia in the Seventies, the rise of the Roots and his interactions with other musicians and celebrities on the road, in the studio and as the bandleader on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

    A press release promises “musings about the state of hip hop, the state of music criticism, the state of statements,” as well as Questlove’s thoughts about “pivotal moments in black music and pop culture.”


    Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove
    is due June 18th through Grand Central Publishing. The ever-busy Questlove has recently been teaching a course at NYU titled “Topics in Recorded Music: Classic Albums,” and has been working on new albums with D’Angelo and Elvis Costello.
