Last night, BBC 1Xtra host Benji B aired an hour long audio documentary on the illustrious life and career of A Tribe Called Quest front man and all around Hip-Hop culture linchpin, Q-Tip. In his own words, Tip told the story of his childhood in Queens and some of the early records that inspired him, the founding of Tribe, his work with J Dilla and Nas (who also contributes commentary along with Pharrell and The Pharcyde) and much more. He also discusses his new solo project The Last Zulu as well as the upcoming 25th anniversary of The Low End Theory. Notably, he hints that we might see the release of the original art from ATCQ’s sophomore LP, which featured a nude Naomi Campbell painted in red, black and green.
