*Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson of The Roots has reached out to his Twitter folk to help him clear a sample by French jazz pianist Alain Goraguer.

The drummer and producer turned to his 1.5 million followers this morning to ask for help in contacting Goraguer, urging fans to spread the word

He tweeted: “Anyone out there connected to french composer Alain Goraguer? i got a sample clearing issue & im sorta desperate. RT (retweet) please.”

And ?uestlove’s public plea may have just worked. One follower immediately replied, “actually I may know a way to find Goraguer.”

Further details about the hip-hop star’s current project, for which he is seeking the sample clearance, are unknown.
