The Low End Theory
by A Tribe Called Quest remains one of the most under-appreciated hip-hop albums of all time. Critics love them, but Tribe has never had the mainstream recognition they deserved. Tribe frontman Q-Tip
has just announced his official partnership with Kanye West by signing to West's G.O.O.D. Music
label (along with Def Jam) to release his next solo album, The Last Zulu
, due out next year. According to Pitchfork
, Q-Tip has also worked with Kendrick Lamar and Fiona Apple in the studio for his upcoming works. We're ready to hear the fruits of this labor the second it's available.
