Questlove Tries To Get Patti LaBelle To Cook For Him In New Cartoon

(Radio.com) In a new animated series for OkayPlayer, Questlove tell us a story like no other: the story of his epic and ongoing attempts to get Patti LaBelle to cook him some of her legendary soul food.

The story beings in 1998, when the Roots drummer met LaBelle at an awards show and she offered some backstage promises to invite his band over for some home cooking, detailing an amazing-sounding meal including dinner and breakfast.

DJ Jazzy Jeff, in a moment of foreshadowing, told Questlove that it'll never happen, as he's been waiting on those grits and pancakes since "Parents Just Don't Understand" was a hit.

Never one to back down from fried chicken and potato salad, with which Quest seems particularly obsessed, he worked on projects for various people around LaBelle and even one for the woman herself, all to no avail. He constantly finds himself high and dry.

"Now, this is just done," he said. "I can't with Patti LaBelle anymore. She has burnt me three times. I resolve to never, ever negotiate for any sort of food again." Watch it here.
