Questlove’s Top ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ Moments


Vibe | September 21, 2010 - 4:20 pm

My Favorite Cats To Back Up:

1) DJ Lance and the Yo Gabba Gabba gang covering Kool and the Gang’s “Spirit of the Boogie”

2) Christopher Cross and Michael McDonald “Ride Like the Wind.” Audience had 0 clue mike was performing

3) Ice Cube “Straight Outta Compton.” We planned it 10 minutes ahead of time, and while on stage with no rehearsal my guitarist Kirk says he is gonna do “Eazy’s part.” Shocked as ever, I caught myself counting in the intro of what is probably our most viral video on the show. It never aired (we did it as a warn up song)

4) The Goodie Mob reunion. We toured together in ’96 and ’98; never thought they would be together again

5) Public Enemy/The Antiballas “Bring the Noise.” My all time favorite rap group and the leading authority in all things afrobeat together making our own Bomb Squad history
