Grand Puba Links With Q-Tip & Large Pro For Comeback LP, Plans New Brand Nubian & Another Solo CD By ’10

Grand Puba revealed to XXLMag.com that he will drop a follow-up to his comeback disc Retroactive- due later this month – as well as reunite with Brand Nubian for another album.

Retroactive, slated for release on June 23, is Puba’s first album in eight years and is set to feature guest spots from Busta Rhymes and dead prez, as well as production by Q-Tip, Large Professor.

“We’re doing stuff now—the crazy shit about it is I’m still working,” Puba told XXL. “A few dudes missed the release date so what I’m doing is I’m coming with a second joint right after that—like a part two.”
As for a release date for the planned sequel, Puba detailed, “Maybe at the top of the year probably—but in between that time, you might see a Brand Nubian joint.”

Stay tuned for a full-length feature with Puba to post on XXLMag.com coming soon. – Devin Chanda

    All Shit! Grand Puba and Q-Tip on the same Record that’s awesome. Then another Brand Nubian CD that’s awesome. 2010 Solo Album for Puba that’s awesome. I see Puba got tired of looking at wack azz videos. Got tired of wack azz CDS. Along with Brand Nubian and Q-Tip. This will save HipHOP!

    Puba is a certified legend in the game. I always wished he got his full due. Glad to see he is still doing his thing.

  • omission

    Puba’s first solo album 2000 was a classic that alot of people forget about. I wonder what the song he has with dead prez is called.

  • latino heat

    i think Puba will sound alright even at his age. that last Brand Nubian album was alright and it was just a few years ago.

    Please, no demand for this dude to drop that much material and ask the few people that actually care to pay retail to own it. At this point in his “career” he should be happy anyone notices he’s still rapping at all!

    The truth about hip-hop is that it has entered a phase in its life-cycle where its most fervent supporters and artists have aged to maturity. We 30 & 40 somethings don’t want to hear Soulja Boy’s unintelligible rubbish and we don’t want to hear the violent and misogynistic music of our youth.

    So, we enter Hip-Hop’s Nostalgic Era where artists make rounds on “Old School” tours and make comeback album after comeback album. Meanwhile, The old school fans still want something new to stick to their ribs without seeming as though they long for past glory. What we are longing for is traditional hip-hop. It’s too bad the younger generation stopped making it, but it was inevitable.

    I predict that we will begin to see new hip-hop stars first emerge in their 30s and 40s. Until, then we have Grand Puba and his contemporaries. He’s a legend. Who the f*@$ are you?

    Nothing worse then young wack-ass fans dissing pioneers and leaving them for dead because of their age. Co-sign with El Tico Loco, it’s not an athletic sport it’s Hip Hop. Nobody’s too old to rock a mic, and how could a newcomer be a better lyricist then somebody who’s been spittin for 10, 20, or 30 years? People need to dead this “he’s too old to rap” bullshit. We need to start embracing and always welcoming our pioneers like other genres of music. If any pioneers deserve a pass it’s Hip Hop pioneers because sorry but Krs, Kane, and Rakim to name a few are the greatest of all time. Nobody today could top them! Somebody correct me if I’m wrong!
