bart5 Posted September 1, 2007 Report Share Posted September 1, 2007 http://www.xxlmag.com/online/?p=13364 In an exclusive interview with XXLMag.com, A Tribe Called Quest frontman, Q-Tip, reveals he’s forming a new group with Common entitled The Standard. “Me and Common [are] getting ready to form a group,” ‘Tip tells XXLMag.com. “We’ll probably run it through the Uni [universal Records] joint because we’re both on Universal.” According to The Abstract, it was Common who suggested the two from a group. “It was more of his suggestion,” he says. “He was like, “We just need to do a record.” So I’m really excited about that.” While the two haven’t started recording together yet, The Standard will start churning out material once the two starting touring together in a few weeks. As far as the production on the album, though, fans can expect Q-Tip to handle the majority. “I’m probably gonna do a lot of it,” ‘Tip says. “And we’ll get Kanye [West] on a couple things, but you know, that cat is busy.” Yeah, now thats what I'm talkin about. I think they will make some pure, dope hip hop. I'm very glad that Common and Tip are going to form a group together. Wow, those dudes are some of my all time fav. emcees. I think that they can be very successful together if they work at it, and make a record that will be 100% better then all the no talent crap thats out there. I also like the name of their new group, "The Standard". Hopefully they will be able to sell records. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
