""You have to bear in mind that [Questlove] is one of the smartest motherfuckers on the planet. His musical knowledge, for all practical purposes, is limitless."" --Robert Christgau

MO' META BLUES
The World According to Questlove

Mo' Meta Blues 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, the philosophers, the heavyweights, and the true originals of the music world. He digs deep into the album cuts of his life, as well as pivotal moments in black art, hip hop, and culture.

Ahmir ""Questlove"" Thompson is many things: virtuoso drummer, producer, arranger, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon bandleader, DJ, composer, and...tireless twitterer? He is one of our most ubiquitous cultural tastemakers, and in this, his first book, he reveals his own formative experiences-from growing up in 1970's West Philly as the son of a 1950's doo-wop singer, to finding his own way though the music world and ultimately co-founding and rising up with The Roots, aka, the last hip hop band on Earth. The book also has some (many) random (and not) musings about the state of hip hop, the state of music criticism, the state of statements, as well as a plethora of run-ins with celebrities, idols and fellow artists, from Stevie Wonder to KISS to D'Angelo to Jay-Z to Dave Chappelle to...you ever seen Prince rollerskate?!?

But Mo' Meta Blues isn't just a memoir. It's a dialogue about the nature of memoir. It's a book that questions what a book like Mo' Meta Blues really is. It's a one-of-a-kind publication by a one-of-a-kind mind.

It's a record that keeps going around and around.
