Roots drummer Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson will release his official memoir, Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove The drummer describes the book as the following:
The collection is a punch-drunk memoir in which everyone’s favorite Questlove tells his own story while tackling some of the lates, the greats, the fakes and the true originals of the music world. He digs deep into the album cuts of his life, and unearths some pivotal moments in Black music and pop culture. But more than just a series of remembrances Mo’ Meta Blues is a book that also questions the nature of memory and the idea of a post modern Black man saddled with some post-modern Blues. It’s the side wind of a one-of-a-kind mind. It’s a rare gift that gives as well as takes.
The book is set for release on June 18. Questlove has also announced that he will perform at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl with a special, unconfirmed guest on Monday.
