Import USA Paperback edition book

MO' META BLUES is a punch-drunk-on-culture memoir in which Ahmir 'Questlove' Thompson tells his own story while tackling the greats, the lates, the fakes, the headliners, and the almost-weres of music, as well as pivotal moments in black art and culture. His book will reveal his own formative experiences, such as growing up in 1970s North Philly with 1950s doo-wop singers as parents, finding his way though music, and ultimately founding and rising up with The Roots, as well as some random musings about his run-ins with celebrities and playing with his idols. This book is a psychedelic amalgam of self-examination, music, pop culture, black culture, and is absolutely one-of-a-kind!
