Q-Tip Submitted Beats to Notorious B.I.G.

September 11, 2009

Q-Tip talks about submitting beats to Notorious B.I.G. and hearing a version of “Nasty Boy”, which sampled Prince’s “Kiss” and ultimately succumbed to sample clearance issues.

When people talk about dope ’90′s producers, the converstaions usually begins (and in some cases end) with Premo, Pete Rock and Extra P. Tip was right there with them though. Dude got mad joints in his catalog. Biggie could have used him on Life After Death but Preme was already on there and having Tip toowould have been too much like…a hip-hop album.

Off the top of my head, the 90% of the first 3 Tribe albums, Nas’s ‘One Love’, Apache’s ‘Gangsta Bitch’, Crooklyn Dodger’s “Crooklyn’ were all courtesy of Q Tip’s board skills.

Cosign what Oskamadison said about Tip not getting the recognition he deserves, he can definitely hang with those other cats, it’s just he’s too humble a dude to make a fuss about it!
