Q-Tip - Stubb's - November 20, 2008

From the Secretary of State department... Q-Tip & The Cool Kids with The Knux @ Stubb's on Nov 20th!

Cop your tix here!


So with all this talk about Hillary Clinton being offered the Secretary of State, you gotta wonder if she'll bend Barack Obama over the President's desk in the Oval Office. I mean this would be a great opportunity to get back at Bill Clinton for his escapades. We all know Bush gives it to Condi Rice where the sun don't shine!

More info:

Q-Tip (born Jonathan Davis, April 10, 1970, in Harlem, New York), is an American hip hop artist, singer, and occasional actor from Queens, New York City. He went to Murry Bergtraum High School in Manhattan, New York and was the leader of the critically acclaimed group A Tribe Called Quest. He converted to Islam in the mid-1990s, and changed his name to Kamaal Ibn John Fareed.[1] The Q in Q-Tip's stage name stands for Queens, the borough of New York City from which he hails. It is also said to be a name that represents his ability to get into one’s ears (as the Q-Tip cotton swab). He also refers to himself as the Abstract' (originally the Abstract Poetic) and Kamaal the Abstract.

Q-Tip has been a resident of Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.[2]

Besides performing with his popular and successful jazz-influenced hip hop group, Tip also did production work (under his production alias the Abstract or often—along with fellow Tribe member Ali Shaheed Muhammad and the late Slum Village member Jay Dee—as part of the Ummah) for artists such as Nas ("One Love," from Illmatic, 1994), Mobb Deep (co-producer on "Give up the Goods (Just Step)," "Temperature's Rising," and "Drink Away the Pain," from The Infamous, 1995) and even R&B divas Mariah Carey ("Honey," from Butterfly, 1997) and Whitney Houston ("Fine," from Greatest Hits).
