Questlove is known for quite a lot of things these days: his afro, practically being a walking music history encyclopedia, having incredible stories, being an author, his massive record collection, having an impressive social media presence, being on The Tonight Show, and so much more. But most importantly, he’s known for being the drummer of The Roots—and an excellent drummer, at that.

During last night’s episode of The Tonight Show, USC’s Trojan drumline challenged Questlove to a short battle. Even with an unfair advantage, Quest holds his own without managing to break a sweat. The battle ends beautifully as both the USC drumline and Questlove meet in the middle to perform together.
