Hip-hop luminary to release new album
- Q-Tip »
Queens' Q-Tip is to release a new solo album later this year.
Q-Tip said that on The Renaissance, he "wanted a hip-hop sonic feel, something pure to the sound of hip-hop with real drums, real emotion and people taking solos.
"In that sense this record feels like we're moving in a new direction ... something hip-hop should do," said the former frontman with A Tribe Called Quest.
