Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson recently kicked off a collaboration with tea brand Gold Peak with a campaign called "Tea is for Trying"—something the multifaceted talent knows extremely well. The award-winning musician knows that if you never try to do something, you'll never achieve excellence in it—so why not give it a go.

From directing and producing the Summer of Soul to writing a best-selling book Music is History, Questlove is not afraid to dabble outside of his comfort zone.

Recently, he sat down with EBONY correspondent Yonathan Elias to chat about his latest partnership and reflect on his tremendous career with The Roots.
