Quest announced the impromtu collaboration Wednesday afternoon, tweeting, “The coolness of this job. @blobtower [Vernon] lets us know he’s in town, we extend a sit in offer: he accepts! #coolness.” Vernon then replied, “@questlove tomorrow is just gonna be plain fun with actual humans that care about fun. #rare #toorare [sic],” solidifying the musical bro-down. Jonathan Cohen, Late Night’s music booker, also confirmed on Twitter that Vernon will “sit in” with The Roots for the Ewan McGregor hosted episode.
