Last week we were promised an all-star line-up on Q-Tip‘s always dope Beats 1 program Abstract Radio. On Friday night as the clock struck 10, he definitely delivered.
After spinning roughly 20 minutes of eclectic cuts ranging from Drake and Future to Shuggie Otis and The Brothers Johnson, Tip welcomed Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Leonardo DiCaprio to share the digital airwaves with its most potent jockey (Sorry, Zane, it’s true.) While much of their candid chat was devoted to sizing up boxing’s greats, the powerhouse quartet also waxed nostalgic over heavyweights of a different nature, which is to say, those that bruise mics instead of jaws. Elsewhere, you’ll find each of these megalithic men of entertainment, discussing each of their respective crowning career moments and putting a stamp on some of their favorite Q-Tip selections.
It’s a rare and intimate glimpse at the dynamic between longtime collaborators and friends. And you can hear it all for the righteously low price of free ninety-nine. Stream this very special installment of Q-Tip’s Abstract Radio below and tune-in to PBS on November 23rd to see the Chappelle/Rock super-team adorn Eddie Murphy with praise during his Mark Twain Prize ceremony.
