Video: Q-Tip’s Lecture at the Red Bull Music Academy

Here is the full video of Q-Tip’s recent sit down with journalist Chairman Jeff Mao at the Red Bull Music Academy. For a treat, fast forward to the 1:36 mark to hear Tip play a snippet of what would have likely been the final version of the unreleased Kanye West song “Mama’s Boyfriend”. Tip explains how he worked with Kanye on the “Billy Joel” sampling tribute to Donda during the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy sessions and that somewhere out there is a version that features Soulja Boy.

If you recall, a version of “Mama’s Boyfriend” leaked back during the Summer of 2011 and was disavowed by Ye as a fake made by somebody who got their hands on the vocals.
