Q-Tip, Leonardo DiCaprio And Jonah Hill To Develop Hip-Hop TV Series


Q-Tip is joining forces with an unlikely pair –– Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, both of whom costar in the box office smash, Wolf Of Wall Street. The trio is said to be developing a scripted TV series, roughly based on the rapper’s experience during the Native Tongues era.

As of yet, there is no writer for the project, but it is slated to be produced under DiCaprio’s company Appian Way and will be pitched to networks, starting next week.

Q-Tip is a founding member of A Tribe Called Quest, one of three principal groups belonging to the Native Tongues collective. The series is to extract from Q-Tip’s experiences with the group and with The Native Tongues, which summoned late ’80s and early ’90s Hip-hop artists known for their forward-thinking, Afrocentric lyricism.
