Questlove, is of course the drummer from The Roots, and as put together a mix of sampled songs that popular hip hop songs have borrowed from which provides an interesting and alternative journey.
Questlove - The Lesson Mix is a cool way to start a Saturday morning or perfect for a lazy Sunday.
It’s not focused on the super rare stuff, more a personal trip through the history of samples and focuses more on samples which are classics in their own right rather than rare for the sake of being rarer than a hen's teeth!
