The Roots' co-founders Black Thought and ?uestlove met at the Philadelphia High School for Creative Performing Arts in an unusual manner. ?uestlove (Ahmir Thompson) recalls, in a 2008 Rolling Stone interview, that he was on his way to class when he saw a guard pulling a kid by the ear. That kid was an incoming 9th-grader named Tariq Trotter (that’s Black Thought for the uninitiated), who had just been busted getting some from a ballerina in the bathroom. The two Philly-bred youngsters became good friends afterward. The Roots formally formed as a live band in 1987 under the stage moniker Square Roots.
