Q-Tip Promises Native Tongues-Themed Season Two of Abstract Radio

On Thursday, Q-Tip joined Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, where he made a special announcement. The Tribe Called Quest frontman broke the news that his Abstract Radio podcast will return on April 2 and 9 PM Eastern Standard Time. Tip promises a mix of classic music and modern music, regardless of genre.

“The Abstract Radio crew, we bringing y’all the Natives Are Restless,” he said. “This is the theme. We are going to begin down doing our thing, all things native. When I say native, I mean native tongues. And all things that grow from that. We’re talking about Tribe, De La, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Kendrick, Kanye, Cole. Any more C’s or K’s I could think of. We’re thinking H.E.R., we’re thinking about Lauryn. You know what I’m saying?”

There hasn’t been a new episode of Abstract Radio since 2018. In recent years, Tip executive produced Danny Brown’s 2019 project uknowhatimsayin?

“We’re doing OutKast,” Tip continued. “You know what I’m saying? We are doing all the things, Pharrell, we doing everything, Tyler, the Creator, everything that comes from the native arm, you know what I’m saying? We doing that. You better ring the alarm, boy. Abstract Radio is back! We still doing it. And we still trying to make radio interesting. We try and do it innovative. We’re trying to give it something a little light, give it something good and fun.”
