Digging is actually an understatement because he’s basically losing his mind over how good the record is.
He took to Instagram to explain why he loves the record so much and also revealed that he was so excited over it he called soulman D’Angelo up at 4am just to tell him to listen to the record.
“Dude I’m so fucked up right now. I can’t even form the proper hyperbolic sentence to explain to D’angleo why I woke him up at 4am to listen to this,” he wrote.
Basically, Quest was expecting “some fresh millennial 2016 hip hop shit” but instead he got “a trip to Detroit circa 1972 at United Sound Studios.”
He even goes as far to say that “the last sucker punch in black music” as good as Awaken, My Love! was Sly & The Family Stone’s There’s A Riot Goin’ On. And then he adds that he hasn’t been this “stunned” by an album since he received an advance copy of Amy Winehouse’s Back To Black.
In short, he bloody loves the record.
