Questlove Recalls Mistaking Barack Obama for a Postmates Driver



Questlove shared a story with The Hollywood Reporter about the time he thought former President Obama was his Postmates.

Obama was calling to congratulate him on his Summer of Soul doc winning at Sundance Film Festival. He said, my phone rings and I’m wondering where my Postmates guy is with my food. The caller says ‘hello?’ and I was like, ‘yo come to ___ floor I’ve been waiting on you. The guy is like, ‘huh?’ I said Postmates? This is Barry. Wait do you think I’m your Postmates? Questlove missed all the earlier text messages alerting him the former president was calling.
