Thats right folks. Our very own Q-Tip is getting tapped for a Native Tongues inspired television series by Scorsese’s Wall Street cohorts Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. The series is still very much in the conceptual stage, but we do know that it will revolve around the NT movement, which showcased a collective of groups like ATCQ, De La Soul, Black Sheep and The Jungle Brothers (not to mention countless affiliates) Q-Tip who was one of the young patriarchs of that progressive period that spawned the backpackers, is no doubt a chief consultant on the dynamic between the groups. We don’t know about a time frame, but if the star-power behind this project is any indication of the types of potential narratives, then we need it tomorrow. We’ll have more on the project as details unfold.
