Questlove has revealed that he and Jay-Z have a secret project in the works, the details of which will be made clear in the upcoming weeks.
He said in an recent interview,
"Basically, Jay's a friend. I went there and it was hectic. He and I are actually working on a secret project, so I was kind of taking a break from working with him and he was just like, 'Come by the opening.' So I came. So we're doing something real big in the next few weeks."
He also commented on the fact that he told Jay-Z he would give Blue Ivy Carter an iPod for her nursery, to build her musical foundation, and Jay-Z has been pressuring him for it. Quest says he still plans to hand over an iPod.
"He's absolutely elated and in cloud nine. And he's waiting for his iPod. Yes, I'll give you your iPod. I kind of promised to him in my Rolling Stone article that I would have this nursery iPod. Not nursery songs, but I figure I kind of said, by the time your daughter's three, she's going to know who Frank Zappa is and Captain Beefheart and LL Cool J and John Coltrane. All you do is put this in her nursery and play it 24/7 and it's just going to baptize her in music. So ever since I said that seven months ago, he's been like, 'Where's my iPod? Where's my iPod? Where's my iPod?' That's going to be my contribution. I'm going to mold her musical mind."
