I should really go to OKP more often than I do, and this REALLY reminded me so. ?uestlove had a thread where he told stories and anecdotes on various famous people as requested by OKPers. Let’s just say the results are classic, I spent a good hour reading through it, when I should be packing.. but so worth it.
I’m going to quote one story as a sample, about D’Angelo to get a sense of the amazing insider/personal stuff ?uest shares..
