Above, the drummer and the emcee speak on The Roots’ picnic and how they couldn’t get Run DMC to reunite for it. Revealing that Ghost, Meth & Rae will be performing live (backed by The Roots of course) instead. After the jump, ?uesto speaks on hip hop’s fork in the road, how it’s like being in the game when the left digit in your name is a 4 and the meaning behind the new album cover. UPDATE: Brought this back up as Ms. Drama caught up with ?uestlove to talk about an assortment of topics. Ranging from the Money Making Jam Boys to the collab album with John Legend. Included after the jump.
