-When did you realize that
you have perfect pitch? -Right.
-Do you know this? Do you know what that is?
Perfect pitch? Less than 1% of us have
this talent, but basically — -I think you might have it. The Roots told me you might
low-key have it. -Oh, I don’t think I have it. -It means you can like, hear,
like, any note. Like, if I were to tell you to
play an F sharp, it would be — [ Vocalizes note ] -Wow. -Or a G.
[ Vocalizes note ] Or C sharp.
[ Vocalizes note ] -What if I gave you,
like, B flat? -[ Vocalizes note ] -Is that right? -So, it’s almost like I
memorized the notes in my head, and I could do it from
when I was like four years old. It’s like a weird —
It’s a very odd thing. -That’s unbelievable.
-Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ] -Yeah, it definitely affects me
socially sometimes because I was in a hotel room
the other night, and usually when you hear
car horns and fire alarms, they’re at minor
second intervals, like… [ Vocalizes notes ] Like, “Jaws” is like, “Get out
of the water,” Jaws. [ Vocalizes “Jaws” theme ] And that’s what
a fire alarm is sometimes, and it’s two notes rubbing
against each other, and it tells you to get the hell
out the building, and I was on the 11th floor, and I wasn’t getting
out of the building. I was, like, rearranging notes
in my my mind, and I was like,
“What if it was like…” [ Vocalizes notes ] Like, there was one time — -You’re harmonizing with
the alarm? -I’m harmonizing with the alarm. I let my entire school out early
one time because there was a digital bell
that went like this. Rumson-Fair Haven Regional
High School. I got suspended for this. It went…
[ Mimics bell ] So, I was — I wanted —
It was almost summer break, and I went into the middle of
the hall and went into a very reverberant part of
the school and just went… [ Mimics bell ] I let the entire school out
early. -No way! That’s awesome! -I got suspended for that.
That was not good.
