Prince Once Fired Questlove to Watch a Movie

The Roots drummer recalls Finding Nemo story.

Published November 11, 2015

Questlove shared a funny story yesterday proving that Prince has a thing for animated films.  

According to the Roots drummer, Prince once fired him from a DJ gig and replaced the Philly native with Finding Nemo. The nostalgic moment came to mind when Pixar released the trailer to the Nemo follow-up Finding Dory.
