    Angelo’s “Voodoo” album during an interview at Red Bull Music Academy. In the recording session, he was told to emulate D’ Angelo programming the drum without quantizing it, which then accidentally created a raw, dragging and uneven drumming style that fits D’ Angelo’s music perfectly. It is very impressive to see Questlove in the interview deliberately play every drum beat behind but still being able to keep the tempo.

D’Angelo is well dressed with designer clothing, lives in a nice apartment, not in the pit and is elevated from the other dealers. Bodie and Wallace both live in a grungy apartment with many siblings and both wear old, tattered clothing. As D’Angelo approaches the…
