The Evolution of Q-Tip

Talk about a good week. Yesterday, April 10, was Q-Tip's 42nd birthday. Believe it or not, the rapper-producer has been making classic music for almost a quarter-century now. And his long career has actually been on an upswing over the past few years, punctuated by today's announcement that he's signed a deal with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music imprint. It's the perfect moment to look at back at Q-Tip's journey from Linden Boulevard (represent, represent-sent) to hip hop hall of fame status. —Alex Gale
