Podcast of the Week: That Time Obama Peer Pressured Questlove to Play French Montana

The Broken Record podcast returns with a two-part interview featuring drummer, DJ, author, and all-around renaissance man: Questlove. They talk Voodoo, they talk about the sea change that was the Beasties and LL in the 1980s, and Quest tells his Obama White House party story.

You don’t have to be a music geek to appreciate this, but if you are, this is gold. For the drummers, make sure you check out part two when Quest gets behind a kit and starts giving examples – it’s a real treat. He lays down the broken drum machine / drunken master feel and talks about his own evolution.

I didn’t want this conversation to end. More will be written about insights from this podcast in the days ahead.
