In the animated video above, Questlove tells the story of hunting down Patti LaBelle’s legendary but illusive soul food—the same soul food Mick JaggerElton John, and Big Daddy Kane have all praised in the past. 

For almost a decade, Quest went around town trying to broker deals in exchange for LaBelle’s famed chicken and sweet potatoes. Fool will do anything for some collard greens #respect

The video is the first of hopefully many “Storyville” animated Questlove tales; allegedly, the Roots drummer/DJ/chef has music industry anecdotes about Prince, Puffy, Maya Rudolph, Dave Chappelle, Jazzy Jeff, LL Cool J, Eddie Murphy, D’Angelo, Salma Hayek, and more.
