Ahmir Khalib Thompson was born in 1971 in Philadelphia, surrounded by the musical influence of his frontman father’s involvement with popular musical groups in doo-wop, and other Top 40 music. Often accompanying his father on the road, Thompson learned to play drums, set up lighting, and place mics for performing acts throughout the country. High School introduced him to Tariq Trotter (also known as Black Thought), an aspiring MC, with whom he collaborated with as ‘Questlove,’ forming The Square Roots. In the early 1990’s, bassist Leon Hubbard and rapper Malik B. joined the duo, forming The Roots. The sound of neo-soul was formed and the group enjoyed underground recognition, which would later turn to critical acclaim in 2006, with their Grammy-nominated release, Game Theory. In 2008, Questlove continued as drummer and bandleader with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He also produces, writes, DJs, and owns a catering company.
