For those late to the game, Q-Tip has been cooking with heat on Abstract Radio. Since its late June start as one of the core programs on Apple Music, Abstract Radio has played host to some titanic line-ups. We’ve heard Kamal dissect the holy trinity of funk with D’Angelo (that’d be James, Sly and George) discuss the impact of Jimi Hendrix with Andre 3000, hell, we almost saw DJ Premier & Pete Rock duke it out on the ones and twos on that very dope radio show. But what Tip has in store for us this week is a cut above even those moments, welcoming mammoths of comedy Dave Chappelle & Chris Rock to the program along with (speaking of titanic line-ups) Leonardo DiCaprio. The nature of the show can’t rightfully be determined just yet, but we imagine there’ll be some reminiscing, rhymes and, of course, plenty of smiles. Q-Tip’s Abstract Radio hits the air this Friday at 10pm EST, so do what you must, just be sure you’re by a device that can support. This one simply should not be missed. And if you need a taste of just what trailblazing programming Tip has been slinging, jump back a bit to catch up.
