Q-Tip - The Renaissance 2LP

Universal

Q-Tip's highly anticipated new album The Renaissance mixes soul beats, piano, guitars and his usual thought-provoking lyricism, which takes you on a trip from relationships and summer songs to social issues of late and has a kind of '90s over-all feel. Features the Norah Jones collaboration "Life Is Better" which serves as a tribute to all of Q-Tip's favorite rappers, including Biz Markie, LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg, Easy-E, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Brand Nubian and Pimp C. Also features guest appearances from Raphael Saadiq, D'Angelo and Amanda Diva.
