Although Q-Tip is now affiliated with Kanye West and his G.O.O.D. Music camp, Tip is making it known that his next album will be indicative of who he is. When Vibe asked Tip about the perception that his next album would be “all Kanye,” he replied by explaining what his next album, The Last Zulu, will sound like.
“It’s gonna be me, straight up and down,” he said. “That’s the thing about [Kanye West]. He respect me. I respect him. We all know what it is. I’m coming with that boom bap, unrelenting, lyrical, thoughtful, edgy, street…I’m really excited about it. It’s gonna be called The Last Zulu.”
Tip also opened up about “I Want to Thank You,” a song he did with Busta Rhymes recently. He asked fans to start a petition to make it Busta’s next single and he explained that the song is “crazy.”
“Let me tell y’all about this song I did with Busta Rhymes. It’s called ‘I Want to Thank You.’…The record is crazy.”
