Q-Tip discusses solo LP The Last Zulu, Tribe reissues

By | Published on Tuesday 24 June 2014


Mr Q-Tip has thrown a bit of light on his forthcoming solo LP ‘The Last Zulu’, and also the imminent 25th anniversary re-release of A Tribe Called Quest’s 1991 record ‘Low End Theory’.

Talking as the star of his own hour-long radio doc ‘The Story Of Q-Tip’, which aired recently via BBC Radio 1Xtra, the rapper named David Bowie and Miles Davis as his main inspirations whilst writing ‘The Last Zulu’, which he’s billing as “the evil twin of Tribe”.

The ‘Low End Theory’ reissue, which is due to be announced “soon”, will carry new and unreleased tracks from back in the days it was made, and possibly a take on his original idea for its artwork, a naked painting of Naomi Campbell.

Take a listen to the doc, which features Pharrell, Pharcyde and Nas as talking heads, via this lil link.
