American Grammy Award-winning hip-hop and R & B artist, Q-Tip, also performs as an actor, rapper and producer. From his early days in the Jamaica, Queens area of New York City, Q-Tip has fused the elements of classic R & B with jazz and bass as he performs original works aimed at a revival of the timeless sounds of artists such as A Tribe Called Quest.
Q-Tip's latest album, The Renaissance, is significant in that he supports a revision in the current direction of the hip-hop music genre. With award-winning hits such as "Galvanize" and "Vivrant Thing," this artist is something to watch. Q-Tip tours both in the US and internationally, with venues in locales such as Switzerland, Norway, Germany, France and the UK.
