Why Questlove made Keith Olbermann a 201-song hip-hop mixtape
The Tonight Show bandleader was taken aback by Olbermann’s tweet praising Eminem’s recent Trump smackdown in which the former MSNBC said, “After 27 years of doubts about rap I am now an Eminem fan. Best political writing of the year, period.” So Questlove responded with “The Keith O Challenge,” resulting in a 21-song playlist for Olbermann. “Saying you ignored rap for 27 years is basically saying you're indifferent to the very black lives you champion on your platform,” Questlove wrote about Olbermann.
