DESCRIPTION
Hard to believe that this is only Q-Tip's second album since his solo debut nine years ago on 1999's Amplified. Of course there was the never released but lightly bootlegged Kamaal The Abstract, which was deemed ''not commercial enough'' by Arista in 2002. The better half of the past decade saw the emcee rise into somewhat of a more well known personality in the mainstream, appearing in film and television, contributing to many high profile albums for artists and soundtracks. But the glory days of A Tribe Called Quest are not lost with their disbandment, re-uniting for tours and special appearances and remaining a true inspiration after all these years to younger generations even in the current state of mainstream rap. The Renaissance is surprising to say the least, I like many others had my doubts, but it truly is a release worthy of its creator, as the album is completely produced by Q-Tip with the exception of one track by the late J-Dilla. Jazzy, soulful, and not at all an attempt at proving to his former label that he can be commercial too! So there. Featuring guest appearances by Raphael Saadiq, Norah Jones, D'Angelo and Amanda Diva.
