Some might not know that his name symbolizes his power to penetrate into one’s ears (as the Q-Tip cotton swab). Wiki is great. A known legend in Hiphop scene, Q-tip worked with the likes of Norah Jones, Raphael Saadiq, D'Angelo and Amanda Diva in this new album. So if you care to listen to a lil bit of Hiphop, blues and soul, catch the date.+/-
