QUESTLOVE GIVES UPDATE ON ‘THE ROOTS’ UPCOMING 17TH ALBUM; WILL HAVE OVER 300 TRACKS TO CHOOSE FROM!! WOW LOL
HipHopDX got to attend an exclusive lunch at A.O.C wine bar in West Hollywood, California with The Roots drummer, Questlove as he promotes the group’s new track “It ain’t Fair” featured on the new film, Detroit.
Last October, Questlove announced The Roots 17th album.
263 songs have been recorded for End Game (the upcoming album) as of right now!! But let’s be clear only 14 will make the cut.
“Usually when we get to 100 songs, he’s like, ‘Guys. You have 100 songs,” Quest explained. “There are 14 really good songs in these 100. Let’s stop and concentrate on the 14.’ Right now, we’re at 263. But ideas keep coming. I made the promise that by November 1, we are stopping. And we’re just going to pick a good 14. And I’m certain by then, it’ll be 400 songs.”
To pick only 14 songs out of 400 will definitely be tough.
