Hot 97 catches up with Questlove for the latest installment in their “Reflection” series. Legendary drummer from The Roots takes us back to the early days of the band. He also reflects on what it takes to succeed in the industry.
On being a successful musician:
“You still have to put in 10,000 hours of practice in. Even when you’re in an established profession. You wonder why you’re favorite MC always falls off, it’s cause they don’t put the same amount of pressure on themselves to keep rhyming. To keep expanding their vocabulary, once they get put on. You have to love it. It has to be something you’re willing to wake up 4 in the morning for. And something you’re willing to put constant concentration and rehearsal behind.”
