Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Beyond a drummer, DJ, musical supervisor, and producer, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson is a foodie. Followers of the Grammy Award-winning Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native’s social platforms know, as well as his friends and acquaintances, that ?uest is out for the finest in global culinary offerings.

Never shy from a celebrity story, Questlove and his OkayPlayers animated an extensive nine-minute-telling of one man’s epic search to sample Patti Labelle’s famed soul food cooking. Labelle, also a Grammy Award-winning Philly native, has a line of BBQ sauces featured at her website, which also includes recipes and a forum devoted to food. Still singing, although more Soul and Gospel than Disco these days, the Lady Marmalade icon thrives in the studio, on stage, and in the kitchen:

In his own brand of humor, the animated short (which may have additional volumes) tracks the funky drummer trying to slip lip over macaroni and cheese and other delights, with a host of road-blocks along the way.

Have you ever had the Soul singer’s BBQ sauce?
