Biografia

Kamaal Ibn John Fareed (nacido como Jonathan Davis el 10-4-1970), más conocido como Q-Tip, es un MC, productor, cantante y actor estadounidense procedente de Jamaica, Queens (NYC), conocido sobre todo por ser parte del prestigioso grupo de hip-hop de los 90 A Tribe Called Quest. Se convirtió al islam a mediados de los 90 y cambió su nombre a Kamaal Ibn John Fareed. Él también se refiere a sí mismo como The Abstract. Tras separarse el grupo en 1998, Tip comienza su carrera en solitario, comenzando por su álbum 'Amplified' (1999), producido por él mismo y Jay Dee. Se vio como un disco más comercial que sus trabajos anteriores, pero aún así fue un éxito de crítica y ventas. En 2001 graba Kamaal the Abstract, pero la discográfica se niega a publicarlo, tildándolo de "incomercializable", y Tip debe sufrir varias cancelaciones del lanzamiento por parte de distintas discográficas durante años hasta que por fin se publique (tras comprar el propio artista los derechos) el 15 de septiembre de 2009. Aún así, fue un disco muy difundido a lo largo de los años por las copias piratas que circularon por internet desde el primer momento, y adorado por seguidores y crítica. Tras otro disco no publicado, Open (2004), Tip vuelve por fin al mercado con The Renaissance (2008) nueve años después. Es otro éxito de crítica, e incluye colaboraciones de cantantes como Raphael Saadiq, Amanda Diva, Norah Jones y D'Angelo, además de J Dilla produciendo un tema (Move). Se han hecho remezclas de Gettin' Up, con Eve (producida por Swizz Beatz), de Renaissance Rap (con Busta Rhymes, Raekwon y Lil Wayne) y de We Fight/We Love, con Kanye West y Consequence.
