Just in case you missed it, ?uestlove and John Legend sat for an interview with AOL Music to discuss their musical origins, politically driven inspiration and the collaborative work that went into their Wake Up! LP, following its 2010 release. The pair offer a bit of insight into the earliest stages of the project and the more difficult aspects of production in the six-part discussion. With John Legend and The Roots in one room, a performance was bound to happen. The crew ran through four songs from the 12-track project, including “Wake Up Everybody” – the title track courtesy of Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes, “Little Ghetto Boy” by Donny Hathaway, “Hard Times” by Curtis Mayfield and “Shine” – an original track from Legend. Check the interview below. Scroll down for a link to the performances.
