"When Prince's 1999 came out, it touched off a saga that lasted half a decade. I would say, conservatively, that I purchased that record eight times between 1982, when it first came out, and 1987, when I stopped getting on punishment for having it." Hip-hop star Questlove spent his formative years purchasing copy after copy of PRINCE's classic album 1999 because his mother repeatedly threw out the soul superstar's records as she considered them to be too sexy.
