Q-Tip Previews Unreleased Version of Kanye West's "Mama's Boyfriend" (Video)


Kanye West's "Mama's Boyfriend" plays at the 1:37:00 mark.

Q-Tip is one of hip hop’s greatest MCs and producers. As a member of A Tribe Called Quest, he helped to shape the sound of hip hop throughout the ’90s. The group’s exceptional run of full-lengths became a blueprint for MCs looking to balance the literate and the absurd, as well as producers searching for the perfect (and unexpected) break—Tribe’s influence is pretty much unmatched in hip hop circles. Since Tribe’s split in 1998, Q-Tip has kept busy with a solo career that has included four albums as well as countless productions and guest appearances in places both expected (Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, and Jay-Z) and improbable (Chemical Brothers, R.E.M.). He has also honed his DJ chops, spinning regularly in New York City and beyond.

    Dope stuff!

  • doc rovers

    Why does Kanye nowadays cosign hip hop's lowest, worst pieces of crap? Soulja, Chief, etc

  • doc rovers

    by the way that song was WAY too nice not to be released. What happened Ye? Same with that dope sounding Flashing Lights remix ft Charlie Wilson?

  • DeVille

    The Kanye stuff was the least interesting part of the video

  • RUNDET

    The "leaked" mama's boyfriend that came out two years ago, produced by whoever it was, was really dope though.

  • stu

    • http://pvkvsv.bandcamp.com Do I to you look like a lame?

      Someone asked if there were any new artists that inspire him or that he liked.

  • Me

    The best rapper/producer ever. I can't wait to hear "The Last Zulu".
