Veteran rapper Q-Tip is the latest high-profile artist to sign onto Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. The former member and producer of A Tribe Called Quest is expected to release a solo album called The Last Zulu. The Huffington Post reports:
Following last week’s release of “Theraflu” and “Mercy,” Kanye West has made another addition to his G.O.O.D. Music roster. Legendary hip hop producer and A Tribe Called Quest MC, Q-Tip is reportedly expected to release his forthcoming fourth solo album, “The Last Zulu,” on West’s imprint and Def Jam Recordings, according to Universal Republic and Island Def Jam Chairman & CEO, Barry Weiss.
“I am thrilled to be working with Q-Tip once again,” Weiss said in a press release. “He is a respected voice in the music community as shown by his acclaimed solo albums and countless contributions to the work of other artists. His creativity continues to surpass all boundaries of hip-hop, R&B, pop, and jazz. We welcome Q-Tip to the G.O.O.D. Music / Island Def Jam family.”
Q-Tip’s latest venture marks a reconnection with Weiss, who was also responsible for releasing the hip hop group’s catalog on Jive Records during the 1990s.
