It’s always nice to see musicians investing their time into interests other than just music. In an effort to pay tribute to, and enlighten those who are perhaps unfamiliar, Q-Tip has teamed up with Leonardo DiCaprio (one of Q-Tip’s BFFs), and Jonah Hill for an autobiographical-style TV show that will focus on the Native Tongues movement. The scripted show will based on the Abstract’s personal experiences from the era, when De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, and Jungle Brothers collaborated in the ’80s and ’90s and pioneered “conscious hip-hop.”
No other details on the project have emerged, other than the fact that there is neither a title nor a script for the project. Regardless, this will be an interesting one.
