BHF ’11 – Q-Tip (video)

BHF '11 Video: Q-Tip Solo Performance
This is awesome footage from the people over at BrooklynBodega. They threw a great festival (Brooklyn Hip Hop Fest 2011) and Q-Tip really brought mad talent, rocking a set and inviting special guests to share the stage with him. We already put up footage of Q-Tip with Kanye and Q-Tip with Busta. Here is more of his set, plus he speaks about Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest* documentary, directed by Michael Rapaport.

* We did our own RoundTable discussion about the movie and about Tribe’s contributions to hip hop in general with Masta Ace, Marco Polo, PackFM and Fresh Daily, which will go up in a few days as well.

In its seventh year, the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival featured the legendary MC/Producer Q-Tip as its 2011 headliner. Check out Q-Tip & band perform “Verses From The Abstract,” “Let’s Ride” & “Excursions”. The Abstract also clarifies his stance on the recent ATCQ Documentary, “Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest.”
