Q-Tip's Renaissance

For almost 20 years I've been a big fan of Native Tongue groups like De La Soul, the Jungle Brothers, and A Tribe Called Quest, the latter of which featured the now-famous solo artist Q-Tip. Q-Tip released a new album, Renaissance, last week that is garnering some nice attention; the tracks I've heard have a sweet live band feel to them, with a jazzy Tribe Called Quest vibe. The album is available on standard vinyl (which means it's affordable), and I plan to hunt down a copy myself this week, so check back soon for further details!

Here's a video of Q-Tip's recent MySpace premiere for Renaissance:
