Questlove recently appeared on an episode of Comedy Central’s Drunk History, where he broke down the birth of hip-hop.
Speaking with host Derek Waters, Questlove tells the story of hip-hop pioneer Theodore Livingston, better known as Grand Wizzard Theodore, and how he invented record scratching. As Quest gets progressively drunker, he then tells the stories of Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash, portrayed by O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube’s son) and Method Man, respectively. The scene featuring Jackson as Kool Herc can be watched here.
