#Repost @questlove ・・・ This can’t be real! Thank you @audible for this honor! All I wanted to do was figure out a way to make 11 hours of #CreativeQuest preaching as less taxing as I could make it. The response I’ve been getting about the skits and music is so encouraging I’ll tease that we are in discussions on how to give #MoMetaBlues the same epic treatment. (I also wanna give a s/o to @michelleobama for pushing #becoming back a few weeks past the deadline 🤣😂🤣😂)

#Repost @blackthought ・・・ The Undun cover features a @jamelshabazz photograph. @lesliehewitt included a similar one in the presentation for our talk @themuseumofmodernart. This photo reminds me of me. This was what we used to do as kids. And to Leslie’s point, I see the joy in this photo because I have an intimate understanding of it. But for others, it could be a image of poverty because they don’t understand, and can’t relate. And then, the Coca-Cola sign in the background speaking to the far reaches of capitalism. Damn near every corner of the earth touched. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Think that’s the genius of Jamel Shabazz. Capturing our essence. And it’s why me, Rich, and @questlove picked the cover image — the joy. While understanding the dichotomy. #undunanniversary ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ___⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #undun #theroots ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #hiphop #blackexcellence #culture #photography

#Repost @questlove ・・・ Today marks the 7th anniversary of #Undun. I don’t consider #ATYSYC as our last album, more than I consider it #RichNichols last creative will & testament before his death—-most of which was executed in his final months secluded (leukemia) & w/o verbal communication (his brain was sharp & his fingers could still express his opinions). So kinda in my mind “this” was our last lp. Miss Rich still. @jamelshabazz The Roots

#Repost @michelleobama ・・・ From listening to Stevie Wonder and @earthwindandfire growing up to @Beyonce and @JanelleMonae during my time in the White House, music has always been a defining part of who I've become.
