Last night on The Daily Show, Questlove told John Oliver the story of how one episode of The Cosby Show revolutionized hip hop. http://on.cc.com/19uhtIa
"Pretty much every hip hop luminary that developed across the 90s and 2000s saw this episode and it changed their lives. We never saw a sampler before," says Questlove.
"The technology was invented but that’s the first time we saw it."
Watch that full episode: "A Touch of Wonder." Thanks to TV Land.

Jammin’ on the one!
