Described by fellow Quest member, Jarobi as the "Leader" on A Tribe Called Quest's debut album, Q-Tip is now considered as one of the leaders in the rap game. He helped pioneer a positive hip-hop movement as part of the native tongues and has made it his duty to help and provide direction for some of the most talented artists over the years, such as Busta Rhymes, Consequence, Nas, Mobb Deep, The UN (2).

Q-Tip has three unreleased albums, two with DreamWorks Records and one "Abstractions" with Arista. He has released two solo albums to date.
