Toward the end of his radio show, Q-Tip played snippets of two tracks — “Want U 2 Want” which features Kendrick Lamar and “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” a cover of Elton John featuring Demi Lovato.
“Not really new, but whatever,” Q-Tip said of the first track, hinting that the track was recorded awhile ago and is likely to be released soon. However, it’s unknown if the song is a one-off or part of a larger forthcoming release.
Late last year the A Tribe Called Quest rapper called out the Grammys for not nominating the group for their last album We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service.
“We were the most black, cultured group out. That’s all we stood on. That’s what we represented, This last Tribe album, this stands with everyone else’s shit that’s up there. I don’t give a fuck,” Q-Tip said in an Instagram video shortly after the nominees were announced.
“I’m sick of y’all fuckin’ Grammy ni**as, man. Ya’ll get us get out there to perform last year and close and shit, and y’all don’t get us no fucking nominations?”
