Q-Tip Prepares to Release New Solo LP, Unreleased Jazz Project

q-tip.jpgFresh off of a fall 2006 reunion tour with his group A Tribe Called Quest, Q-Tip is preparing to release his second official solo album in seven years, The Renaissance. The Queens MC recently spoke to about the project, which he plans to release sometime this spring on Universal Motown. Although Tip noted that the recent Tribe tour felt “good” and received a “great response,” the rapper expressed doubt that the group would be hitting the road again anytime soon. “I don’t want to say never, but at this point, I think we’re done for now,” Tip explained.

In related news, the former Tribe front man has also acquired the rights to his unreleased 2001 solo album Kamaal the Abstract. The LP, which features a heavy jazz influence, was shelved by Arista in 2002. Tip plans to officially release the project with newly recorded tracks, as well as the original artwork and liner notes.
