Q-Tip – Gettin’ Up (official video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 12th, 2008 by Hyphen

While an unofficial video for this leaked a while back, here’s the real deal.  I dig this song, but something about the Greg Nice style rhyming kinda annoys me, I can’t front.  Still good to see Tip coming with another album and it was dope to see him at Rock The Bells last weekend.  Here’s an ill pic of Mos Def pointing out Tip’s lyrics to “Excursions” as he spit ’em.  Ill.

Mos & Tip

Shout to Dreezy for the great picture…

Q-Tip – Gettin’ Up (video)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Music Videos on August 26th, 2008 by Hyphen

New unofficial video for Tip’s “Gettin’ Up” single swiped from OKP.  Speaking of Q-Tip and Rock The Bells, despite a bit of a scare, it’s now confirmed: A Tribe Called Quest WILL be performing at RTB in Washington! Whew, that was a close one.  September 6th at the Gorge, be there!

The beat is still wack, but I didn’t see this coming

That’s wild, and easily the dopest thing related to this beat.  I’m still not feeling it and all the oversaturation with various “freestyles” definitely didn’t help.  On a related note, I’m sure Busta’s “I Got Bass” will be labeled one of the bangers of the summer, but that beat’s wack too.  Sue me.  I will give Bangladesh props for flipping this random obscure sample though.
