Questlove Helps Bid Farewell To 'The Champs' On Their Final Transmission

Nelly, John Legend, Jeremih + More Rock Night 1 Of Roots Jam Session 2016 In L.A.

Questlove and The Champs have always had something special. Amongst their countless guests (which includes Trevor Noah, Tracy Morgan, Jerrod Carmichael, Black Thought, Action Bronson and plenty more) it's been Questo's industry stories and requited admiration for the hosting trio (comprised Neal Brennan, Moshe Kasher and DJ Douggpound) that has made for some of its most memorable moments.

Yesterday, the titillating three-piece reunited to deliver, sadly, their final transmission across the inter-waves, inviting Questo back to help sign the show off forevermore with a litany of his terrific tales. The show is available in its entirety for you to hear below, but don't you worry, this won't be the last we hear from The Champs. Currently, Neal Brennan is performing his one-man, three-mic show at NYC's Lynn Redgrave Theater in SOHO, while Kasher has his very own Hound Tall podcast in rotation over at Nerdist and DJ Douggpound is holding down his editing gigs on Adult Swim's Tim & Eric and IFC's Portlandia. Let's all raise a glass for the hilarity they've provided us with over the years. Jump back to Questlove's last appearance on the show by hitting their archive. Long live, The Champs.
