(AllHipHop News) Questlove further reaffirms the belief that he knows every secret in the music industry. During a recent interview, Questlove and Black Thought discuss The Roots legacy in comparison to The Fugees, Chris Rock potentially opening up for Dave Chappelle and more.

Dave Chappelle is scheduled to perform his 10th and final show at Radio City Music Hall tonight (July 27th). The interview with HuffPost Live was recorded the on Wednesday (June 26th), a day after The Roots performed with Dave at Radio City this past Tuesday (June 25th). Dave is not scheduled for any more shows at Radio City Music Hall after tonight and Questlove hints that the final guest will be the biggest one of the 10-show run:

He has a slew of his comedian friends opening up. I know Chris Rock is supposed to…might..great..did I just..[Laughs]. Chris Rock is HOSTING the BET Awards.

In his book Mo Betta Blues, Questlove spoke on a “creative rivalry” between The Roots and The Fugees back in the mid to late 90s. His perspective on the two careers’ trajectories now has changed in hindsight:
