Electronium: The Future Was Then opens tonight, the latest project for musician, entrepreneur, and author Questlove. We know he's got more things going on now than we can keep track of, but we had illustrator Nathan Gelgud take a look at his memoir Mo' Meta Blues to see how he got started.
The band that we've come to know and love (and watch nightly), tried out a few names before it settled on The Roots.
They were Radio Activity...
Then they got hip and dropped the square.
Young Quest loved Prince’s parentally forbidden 1999 so much that every time his parents found the contraband and destroyed it, he’d just go back out and buy it again.
Nathan Gelgud is an illustrator who lives in Brooklyn.
