Questlove and Black Thought interviews with VEVO

December 19, 2011

Questlove and Black Thought sat down with the folks at VEVO and three videos from the session were posted on YouTube today. In the clip above, Black Thought recounts his teenage years and how he got kicked out of school and started doing deals on the block before a life-changing intervention put him on a different track. After the jump, Questlove talks about viral-pop sensations Karmin and their covers of radio hip-hop hits, and jazz pianist DD Jackson, whose “incredible, violent” style captivated Quest enough to invite him to play on their new album undun.
