Nearly 25 years have passed since the release of Low End Theory, A Tribe Called Quest's second studio release; and while fans eagerly await the extended reissue of an album seminal to the Tribe catalog, Q-Tip has charted his own course that simultaneously embraces and distances himself from his past excursions. BBC Radio 1 raconteur Benji B tells "The Story of Q-Tip" through one-on-one interviews with Tip himself, Nas, The Pharcyde, Pharrell and a few others. The hour long discussion with tight narration,  takes listeners on an audible journey from the streets of Queens, to personal inspiration, to his forthcoming project The Last Zulu. While this isn't quite a surprise Tribe reunion (for now we'll have to live with the memories of Tip, Phife, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jairobi on stage opening for Kanye's Yeezus Tour) do yourself a favor and press play below. Let us know what you think in the comments.
