Abstract Radio

A celebrated solo artist, producer, and founding member of pioneering influential Queens rap outfit A Tribe Called Quest, Q-Tip is a hip-hop landmark. The iconic MC/DJ/innovator returns to Apple Music Radio for the first episode of his Abstract Radio show with him on the turntables and mic in almost two years. As with most things Tip, the music on the show—blended by hand by the Abstract himself, of course—pays no regard to traditional musical boundaries, leaping fearlessly between decades and genres, from 1960s jazz-pop to 1980s R&B to today’s latest hip-hop, reggaetón, and more.
