Much Respect to the Revive Da Live crew for putting on such a brilliant Event. “Noisemakers” is a forum which includes a special guest honoree in which the house band “The Cypher” will play live tunes from this artist in tribute of what they have given to the world through music for many years. This months honoree was Questlove? of the Legendary Roots Crew. The other dynamic of the event is the live interview hosted by Peter Rosenberg which definitely adds a nice touch to the event overall being that Peter has a great deal of knowledge and insight on the true substance and integrity side of HIP HOP which allows for a great deal of intelligent thought provoking questions to be asked to the honoree. This particular interview shares a lot of gems!

Questlove? talked about everything from his family’s music background, First official Drum set, meeting Black Thought, Introduction to Dilla’s sound, Last convo with Dilla, What they do (Video) in relation to Biggie and Puffy and much more.
Stay tuned as there will be footage available to check out on and until then go check out the footage from last event where DJ Premiere was the honoree.

Always Bless
