Q-Tip - The Renaissance (2xLP)
The Renaissance is the latest effort from critically acclaimed rapper Q-Tip, leader of A Tribe Called Quest. The album mixes soul beats, piano, guitars, and Q-Tip’s 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 feel to it.
