People really don’t realize how amazing Q-Tip is as a producer. That Monty Alexander record he used for Apache is one of my favorite original samples of all time.

An under-rated beat master indeed. 4 words: Mobb Deep The Infamous. Wanna know who influenced Jay Dee and was Jay Dee’s “hero”? Um, yeah, it was ‘Tip.
