?uestlove from The Roots just inked a book deal with Grand Central Publishing for a book combining his always entertaining stories of celebrity encounters, music factoids, and his thoughts on life.

The book will be titled “Mommy, What’s A ?uestlove?”

?uestlove once said that he’d only write such a book long after he retired.  We asked him on Twitter why he decided to do the book now instead of waiting.  His response?  “Just think about Eddie Murphy’s check for Best Defense.”

We certainly hope the book is way better than that movie!

A few years back, ?uesto unknowingly gave the world a preview of the book on’s message boards when fans submitted names of celebrities and he relayed a story about meeting that person.  The post was archived on and makes for great reading!
