Q-Tip Links With Playboy, Designs Limited Edition T-Shirt

Renaissance man Q-Tip has partnered with Playboy magazine for their annual Rock The Rabbit March Music issue.

As part of the initiative the former A Tribe Called Quest front man will be featured in the magazine with a full photo fashion spread by rock photographer Mick Rock. Tip also designed a t-shirt featuring his take on the Playboy bunny logo. The limited edition tees can be found online at shopthebunny.com with a portion of the proceeds going to charity.

“I was inspired to combine the iconic Playboy logo with my stick figure logo and also tie in themes from my new album The Renaissance,” Tip said in a statement. “Vive La Renaissance and Viva La Bunny!”

Playboy’s March music issue hits stands on Friday, Feb. 13.

    Devon this is a real story. Unlike the usual arrests, beef and sex tapes that litter this site. Q-Tip is just continuing to market his album in an unforgiven economy and industry. That is something this site should cover more of but drama sales. i.e. bloggers are talking about Chris brown and rhinina fighting like this is media takeout or some shit. The album is more intelegent rap music and folks who shop at the bunnyshop any way may dig this. Because outside of the men addicted to airbrushed plastic infused models, playboy actually has good articles unlike most of the black almost pron men’s magazine and let’s not even mention the actual black pron magazines yeesh.
