As a solo act, he has continued to keep musicality alive within rap, paying respect to other genres while pushing the envelope on Amplified, Kamaal The Abstract, and The Renaissance. Also having worked with Kanye West, Q-Tip is one name people always go to when they’re looking to keep the spirit of boom-bap alive.
