Q-Tip

The longtime MC with pioneering alternative hip-hop trio A Tribe Called Quest, rapper Q-Tip was born Jonathan Davis in New York City on November 20, 1970. While a student at the Murray Bergtraum High School for Business Careers, he co-founded A Tribe Called Quest with fellow students Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Phife (Malik Taylor) in 1988. The following year, Q-Tip guested on De La Soul's groundbreaking 3 Feet High and Rising LP, with the two groups forever linked through their association with the Native Tongues collective. Tribe's debut single, "Description of a Fool," appeared in the summer of 1989, and after signing to Jive Records, the trio issued its debut LP, People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, a year later. With its fiercely intelligent, socially progressive lyrics and brilliant fusion of rap and jazz, the group emerged as one of the most popular and influential in all of hip-hop, producing such classic LPs as 1991's The Low End Theory and 1993's Midnight Marauders before disbanding in 1998. Q-Tip then mounted a solo career with the 1999 release of Amplified. Although it was successful, he was in label limbo for many years afterward, continuing to record but rarely able to release any of his output. (One album, Kamaal the Abstract, was ready to roll into stores in 2002 when it was halted; it was finally released by Jive in 2009.) His sophomore set finally appeared in late 2008 and earned its title, The Renaissance. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

i would really relish one more ATCQ album, its my make-a-wish!
Classic...
Smooth and on point!
Just saw ATCQ's documentary Beats Rhymes & Life. I was so HYPE before, during, and afterwards. All TRUE ATCQ fans ought to go check it out. Fact is, Tribe is due one more album based on their contract. Come on fellas,(Tip & Phife)lets put down the egos and reunite. Today's Hip-Hop industry need true emcees such as you. PLEASE!
Love Q!!
By himself or with the Tribe, I dig Q!
Da truth!

gabriel.dupl e s s i
One of the best M.C if u ask me
Why did socially responsible, melodic, soulful hip hop go underground. Why are we as a society accepting this generic negatively charged no talent rap take over our airwaves? I think it's time we stop supporting these so called 'artists' with weak beats and unintelligab l e lyrics. It's time for a renaissance of melodic, smart hip hop, am I alone in feeling this way?
gotanya

I can throw on Midnight Marauders or the Low End Theory any day of the week and still enjoy it like it was the first time.
DONT DIS THE TRIBE, TIP WOULD NOT BE TIP WITHOUT A TRIBE CALLED QUEST
I saw Q-Tip in concert in December here in Hawaii, and he brought the house down. He can definitely stand tall on his own without the rest of the Tribe.
I miss the Tribe...I'll always dig Q=tip's output...but ATCQ was best as a unit...
Nevertheless , this is prime stuff
s-amt-h
smoooooth flow
I was hurt when tribe broke up...they should of stuck it out...
Not "one of"..."the".
