When BBC 1 Radio 1′s Benji B sat down to chat with A Tribe Called Quest’s member Q-Tip, what followed was a thrilling story of how hip hop royalty came to be. ‘The Story of Q-Tip’ takes us on a journey from the start when Q-Tip was being inspired by the likes of LL Cool J’s “I Need A Beat”, his dad’s love for jazz, and his first encounter with hip-hop and the first records that he owned. The documentary features interviews with Nas, Pharrell and The Pharcyde and others. The documentary comes just before the 25th anniversary of A Tribe Called Quest classic album The Low End Theory. Also, Q-Tip has a forthcoming album The Last Zulu, which is slated to be released in the near future. Tip is also working on a television series with Leonardo Dicaprio called the “The Native Tongues,” which is based on Q-Tip’s life.
