Questlove's appearance on "The Daily Show"

Earlier this week Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson of The Roots appeared on the "The Daily Show" to promote his new book/memoir Mo' Meta Blues. Though short (at roughly 5.5 minutes) in length the interview yielded a fascinating discussion which touches upon Questlove's traumatic experience involving his favorite show "Soul Train" and the modulated bridge of Freddy's Dead off of the Superfly soundtrack and what he considers to be the most influential moment in the history of hip-hop. It's good stuff.
