Modern hip hop and R&B music can both arguably be divided into pre- and post-A Tribe Called Quest, and the musical efforts of its lead MC and producer Kamaal Ibn John Fareed - better known to the world as Q-Tip. ATCQ's 1990 debut, People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, introduced Q-Tip's iconoclast stance. In 1999, he dropped his first solo album Amplified, featuring the career-defining hip pop hits "Vivrant Thing" and "Breathe and Stop." Produced primarily by Q-Tip with plenty of live instrumentation and a love fixation, 2008's The Renaissance marks the return of one of the most recognizable voices and individualist figures in all of hip hop.
