QTip, the New York hip-hop legend and former leader of A Tribe Called Quest, has signed to Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music imprint on Def Jam Recordings. His fourth solo effort, tentatively titled “The Last Zulu,” will be released through the label in 2013.
Q-Tip joins a roster that includes hip-hop/R&B artists like Pusha T, Big Sean, John Legend and Kid Cudi, among others. A G.O.O.D. music compilation album is in the works, with its West-led first track, “Mercy,” being released last week. Q-Tip previously worked with West on his 2010 album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” as well as on “Watch The Throne,” the collaborative album between West and Jay-Z.
