Legendary hip-hop innovator and Grammy award winner Q-Tip first rose to prominence in 1988 as one of the founders of the trailblazing hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest, whose cerebral wordplay, socially conscious themes, and intricate fusion of jazz and other genre-bending influences changed hip-hop’s lexicon forever.

 Q-Tip continued to evolve and expand his profile as a solo artist with such critically acclaimed solo projects as 1999’s Amplified and 2008’s The Renaissance. Outside of his production work with A Tribe Called Quest, he has also produced for a range of artists across genres including Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Whitney Houston, Mark Ronson, Kanye West, John Legend and more.
