DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT AN ANNOUNCEMENT OF AN ACTUAL ALBUM(S) BUT A NEW FEATURE IN WHICH WE OUTLINE A PROJECT(S) WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE HAPPEN.
With all the exciting news being announced by Questlove these past few weeks, we were inspired to put together a special edition of Armchair A&R. With collaborations already in the works with D’Angelo and Elvis Costello, we thought we would throw together some dream collaborations of our own involving the Legendary Roots Crew. Of course, some of these collaborations involve the creative mastery of Questlove over the entire hip-hop outfit, but we still think Black Thought and the rest of the group might be able to find there way into most of these hypotheticals.
To make things even more interesting, we decided to narrow things down by only using artists that have performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. And there was certainly no shortage of picks, as we ended up excluding a number of top-notch players like Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews Band and more. We couldn’t be happier with our picks though, and we’ve provided full explanations to go along with them.
