its finally here: q-tip's kamaal/theabstract

For those who were too young (me) to know about this, Q-Tip's Kamaal/The Abstract was originally slated to be released in 2002. But due to what L.A. Reid called "a lack of commercial appeal", it was never released. Certain singles and advance copies eventually saw the light of the day however. After a long battle, Q-Tip got the rights to the project and 7 years later it will finally be released on Battery Records. I may be the only one, but this would have been a welcome precursor to the style of music embodied on Outkast's Love Below/Speakerboxx. The album is slated to be released on September 15th. Support good music yall! Here's a video he produced, and a preview of two of the tracks.

Q-Tip "A Million Times"

Q-Tip "Even If Its So"
