Everyone knows what Q-Tip brought to the mic for A Tribe Called Quest, but his production contributions are rarely mentioned. He and Ali Shaheed Muhammad often shared those duties, with Tip producing under the name The Abstract. Q-Tip also did a fair amount of production as part of The Ummah, a collective that consisted of Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, J. Dilla and occasionally, Raphael Saadiq and D’Angelo. Of course he got down on the solo tip, too, producing many of his own classics as well as songs like One Love for Nas. With the A Tribe Called Quest documentary, Beats, Rhymes & Life making its NYC premiere next week at the Tribeca Film Festival, we thought it was a good time to pay respects to Q-Tip the producer. You’ll find music from Nas, Mobb Deep, Janet Jackson, Raphael Saadiq and, of course, lots of Tribe. Just press play, sit back and check out the scenario.
