I love this podcast they cover all aspects of the music game from the musical side, technical side, and radio side. When they go down the rabbit hole it’s the best because they get the beat stories out this people. The supreme team in my opinion is the best especially when Phonte is not out getting milk at the store 😂.
Great guests… too many hosts.
Great guests, but this show really suffers from too many hosts who often drown each other (and the guests) out with errant, off topic questions and personal curiosities. Too often, guests are cut off mid-sentence, right as they’re about to share something the listening audience is actually eager to hear. Ultimately, there’s just no need for three hosts.
dear goodness this podcast is a beautiful one… add it to your playlist NOW AND START FROM THE BEGINNING!!! 💚💚💚 GOD, THE ROOTSSSSS ARE. JUST. THAT. Quest and Black, the entire squad 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽… *exhales. 🤩🤩🤩
I was never really into podcasts and then my daughter started one and I was like cool. Then I came upon QuestLove Supreme and my mind has been blown. I am soooo hooked on these and I’ve even recruited others to join in. Simply amazing, the stories, the history, the connections! Definitely worth every second - Thank You!!!! :)
Saadiq and Jermaine Dupri
QLS never disappoints
Questlove Supreme is my happy place. If you’re a music feign, you will never be disappointed. Feeds my soul and inner geek. Lost my mind during this last episode. Loved Mr. Saadiq’s stories about the Purple One. Hope in addition to part two, there will be a part three… pretty please.
My God, stop endlessly talking, Amir. Please, please learn how to interview properly. One can almost feel your guests’ discomfort when they are not allowed to speak as they should or could. Also, the sound engineering is bad: while listening today I actually had to keep my hand on the volume to adjust it up for the guest and down for everyone else. This podcast has a haphazard nature to it. If Questlove played his music at the same level he podcasts, he just might be able to play weddings.
Good Podcast…Meanders at Times
Great podcast overall. Lots of great, inside knowledge about the guests. Interviewees are often interrupted by interviewers (too many in cast). Too much crosstalk and inside jokes. Laiya should be allowed to speak more without sexist heckling and interruptions.
Could it be TOP’s Oakland Stroke that Bobby McFerrin referenced on his episode??
Didn’t realize just how much of a music nerd I am until I started listening to this podcast! Y’all got me googling the name drops and pausing the podcast only to go to YouTube or my music library to play songs that influenced the singers y’all talking about! I miss reading liner notes and these backstories are interesting and wild!
I’ll keep listening AND…
ONE voice is like nails on a chalkboard. Otherwise it would get five stars. Thank you Questlove or being a music nerd and creating this podcast!
A great podcast!
Hearing the behind the scene stories, hearing the connections to other artists is great. The podcast is so casual- it is reminiscent of listening to family members sitting around the kitchen table talking about the old days. It feels so familial. Great job Supreme fam!
“That’s what’s up.”
Quest has the best laugh ever, and even better friends. Learning a ton about soul, the roots of hip-hop, and just music in general while hearing funny and moving anecdotes from the amazing artists responsible for such incredible music. This podcast is a real gift: Fills my heart. Nourishes my soul. Word.
Great Music Nerd Show.
Not sure how I feel about listening to an episode with some guy who unsuccessfully pulled off a hoax…
Irv Davis' Wingman
A true music nerd’s wet dream come true
This is life. Seriously. Y’all fan out the exact way I would. Y’all ask all the questions that I think of that I think no one would think to ask. I swear Phonte and I have the exact same favorite songs and know a lot of the same random trivia about the artists. I’m a little late finding this pod but everything happens for a reason. This pod is truly in my top 2 favorite podcasts point blank. I love everything about it even the rabbit holes, long winded answers and Suga Steve’s much needed quick witted answers at times. Please keep up the good work. Much love and respect.
How dare you waste endless taxpayer dollars on podcast ads. Please slice off your toes is what I say to every scammer get your voice off ads! Advertising is the biggest sure fire way to ensure that I want everything associated with any ad to die ASAP! The best way to market is free word of mouth, if you are that bad that you can’t do that, change professions!!! SLICE OFF YOUR TOES!!!
The best podcast for hip hop heads & music aficionados!
I have listened to 75% min of these episodes & it 100% kept me sane during COVID lockdown. From Biz (RIP), Marley Marl, & Just Blaze to James Taylor, Michael McDonald, & Huey Lewis all these episodes are CLASSICS!!!
Interview Bilal Oliver
Very overdue interview guys!
I thought it was just me as well…
As a musician I really enjoy this show. Great guest, legendary guest. All the host are knowledgeable about the craft from different point of views except Layia. Many of her interruptions, comments, and jokes are an irritating due to her obvious lack of knowledge on the guest and subjects discussed. It’s not a gender issue, and I know many shows like this feel a need to have a female cohost for the optics, fairness, equalness (not a word) etc, I get it; but there are PLENTY of women in the game (music) that know the subject and that have more add value.
Great Podcast Group. Where’s Boss Bill, tho’???
I’m glad I’m not the only one…
Who finds Laiya annoying. I also get the vibe that Phonte and Steve find her annoying as well. Unlike other reviewers I have not really noticed the hosts talking over the guests but I have noticed awkwardness between the hosts when Laiya comments, jokes, etc. I have enjoyed most of the episodes and have tried to listen to the episodes where I did not recognize the guest or wasn’t initially interested in the guests but learned something anyway. Keep working out the kinks please.
Show is dope.Fun, informative and entertaining. Great relief during the pandemic. Good work people !
Brilliant, great minds.The misogyny is painful.
This is a rough one. QLS is A resource for lovers of art, music, thought, storytelling & people. There is a disconnect from the outrage with race-based violence committed by cops dehumanizing us and how casually women are disregarded and belittled on this program. Waiting for this platform to care about and treat women with humanity with some of the heart, urgency, courage, concern and accountability demanded for racism and classism.
I think the American flag is fine
But then again I think about things other than myself
Still love El
OMG thank You for the interview with El Debarge I stayed up until 1:30am listening. I loved it! So real so down to earth made me love and appreciate even more. Great show you guys are the best Quest! I am going to bed now. 🥱😵💫😊
just listened to mc serch episode. what ever happened to that adue app. cant find anything online
To say that they are undervalued as one of the best music makers of the last 30 years is an understatement. So happy to hear someone give them the respect they deserve. Can’t think of a better person to extol the greatness of the Avalanches like QuestLove does here. Thank you!
This show is so informative and enlightening for a music history nerd like me. But more often than not, the guests are interrupted by the hosts, and it messes up the flow. Additionally, Laiya often asks elementary questions that are very irritating; the show would be so much better without her.
The Best Podcast Ever
I believe Quest is my long lost relative. The way he interprets his musical journey is very so similar to mine on down to being Prince fans. Every guest that he had especially during the Pandora days was taken from my wish list of guests I always wanted to hear from. Also Phonte of Little Brother & Foreign Exchange is a great co-host
FULL FORCE... Whew
I truly enjoyed this ep. Full Force are the United Nations of Singing, Performing and Producing.
Love this crew! Especially Laia...
Her female voice is so needed, and she’s funny/smart!
The Real MamaLee
I’m Late to this Podcast but Not Sorry
This podcast is amazing the Sam Pollard and Chaka Khan episodes were so dope.
Dj Yogi in Atlanta
For the true music lover
This podcast is the absolute best. You get insight into the music/comedy/art processes etc in an honest true fan-like way. Love it
This show is great with the exception of Laiya. She needs to go.
Minus one for Bugs (editing)
Editing is messed up on a lot of episodes. Lots of repeating segments
Best music nerd podcast
Best show going
All the things
This is my absolute favorite podcast to exist.
SIMPLY THE BEST
If I could I’d score it 5 PLUS STARS!!!! I’ve never met anyone with so much passion, love, obsession & knowledge of all of this!!!! I didn’t know people like Quest even existed. I thought I was a music nerd until I tuned into this Podcast!!!! Simply keep doing WutchU doing & how you’re doing it!!!! Luv your show, your fellow panelists, your staff, your concept!!!!!! As Tina Turner said, “Ur Simply The Best!!!!!!” God Bless
I Luuuuuv Chess
Love it (with minor beef)
This podcast has been a savior in Covid. It satisfies my music nerding. The history, stories, knowledge, back stories and insight is incredible. I listen and learn even from episodes I wouldn’t expect to like. Beef: hearing people eating during the recordings. I listen 90% on headphones. Couldn’t finish the Pharoah Monch episode. Someone had a spoon and bowl going on throughout the episode.( I feel like I recall Quest making a point about this NOT allowed in the past. ) Get your food on before you record folks!
Where is the Pete Rock Episode?
Three years ago a friend of mine (Questlove) told me to be patient for this rarest fine Still waiting…
Hard to fully enjoy
Please let the guest talk. I understand the hosts have a wealth of knowledge to share but please prioritize the voice of the guest. The over-talking and the interrupting makes it hard to listen to.
One of the BEST interviews ever
A three hour Mariah Carey interview is BEYOND words. It was enlightening, humanizing, and downright amazing!
Top MC Fan
I love this podcast. Perfect for anyone into hip hop history. My only complaint is how people talk over each other. The most blatant example was Q interrupting Solange nonstop. Now I can’t not hear it. But I’ll keep listening because it’s that good.
Great podcast 💯🙌 female gots to go
Podcast at the top of my list always, love hearing music history and chemistry between hosts. QLS music encyclopedia mind and obsession with Prince and Soul Train is relatable and entertaining to say the least. Fave episode was Alan Leeds and Chris Rock I’m still thinking about it months later. Agree with the other reviews there’s too much talking over each other, but not enough to deter me from bingeing episodes. I definitely want to turn it off when the female host constantly speaks over everyone, interjecting her self involved, narcissistic opinions (& I’m female). Would give 5 stars if she wasn’t on it. I disagree with reviews who said she was being talked down to. She gots to go!
Good Podcast...could be great
Overall, this is good podcast. Phonte and Amir are very knowledgeable about music and I learn something from each episode. The Boyz II Men, Q-Tip and Mariah Carey episodes were excellent. There is room for improvement with the interview style. Hosts seem to interrupt often and can be long winded. It would be nice to hear more of the guests since that’s who we are tuning in for. Maya Rudolf, for example, spoke less than the hosts. And then there was a name that tune segment, with music that only Questlove seemed to know, right in the middle of the interview. It was at least 10 minutes that would have been better spent asking Mrs. Rudolph more questions about her career. Please try to keep personal anecdotes quick, to the point and to a minimum. Also, the woman host comes off like a know-it-all but is often incorrect. I cringed when she was assuming she knew where in Africa Chris Rock’s girlfriend was from.
Narcissistic and sexist
Questlove’s dismissive and condescending treatment of his female co-host is infuriating. Also, his narcissistic need to insert himself into every story is annoying. All your knowledge and name-dropping, Questlove, ain’t impressive when it’s wrapped in hubris. Guest list is great, though.
I always feel like I’m getting an education in music and life when listening to this podcast. Here’s to hoping you get Arlo Parks before she blows up. Much love and respect to you and all. ✌🏽
In depth interviews with the best in the business. Bravo!
Could Listen All Day
New subscriber. I could listen to this podcast non-stop, all day! I especially loved the episode with Branford Marsalis. Can’t wait to check out the other episodes. Dr. Carey Yazeed Host Baldwin Was Right
Love the show. I really appreciate the thoughtful questions and curated guests. Quest and Phonte’s encyclopedic knowledge of musical history, performances and the music industry is incredible. Stand out episodes: Justin’s Blow /Sophia Chang Alan Leeds / Jimmy Jam Kenny Gamble / Babyface Greg Phillinganes / Ray Parker Booty Collins / Al B Sure Great podcast. Really not feeling Laiya’s questions. Most are not relevant or very juvenile. Keep up the great work.
