    Memoir alert!

    Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson will release his memoir Mo' Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove on June 18.

    The collection is a punch-drunk memoir in which everyone's favorite Questlove tells his own story while tackling some of the lates, the greats, the fakes and the true originals of the music world. He digs deep into the album cuts of his life, and unearths some pivotal moments in Black music and pop culture. But more than just a series of remembrances Mo' Meta Blues is a book that also questions the nature of memory and the idea of a post modern Black man saddled with some post-modern Blues. It's the side wind of a one-of-a-kind mind. It's a rare gift that gives as well as takes.

    Will you be getting your Questlove on and your read on with this memoir?
