Lost Q-Tip album to finally be released
Kamaal the Abstract is an experimental jazz-pop album recorded by Q-Tip in 2001. The album was never released, due to problems with J Records, Tip’s label at the time. The album was fairly out there and the label decided they just couldn’t back it. It did however become an underground (real underground…not underground like most sort of mainstream rappers call themselves) sensation, as bootlegs spread quickly.
Now, Kamaal the Abstract will get an official release. You’ll be able to find it in stores on September 15 on Battery Records. Sounds like a good day for a shopping spree.
