?uestlove, the endlessly interesting frontman for The Roots, has seen his popularity soar in recent years. As well as being an accomplished musician, producer, Jimmy Fallon ally, and just a generally well-liked guy, the Philadelphia native has become one of the music world's most respected modern icons.

So respected, in fact, that he was recently invited to the Red Bull Music Academy for a near 90-minute lecture. Topics range from his role on Late Night (soon to be moving to the Tonight Show), his musical side-projects with D'Angelo, and even special drum techniques.
