Common and Q-Tip Tour Together
(Swiped from Pitchfork Media)
Common and Q-Tip will herald the release of the B-Ball Zombie War compilation (on which Q-Tip appears) with a tour together, sponsored by 2K Sports. Joining them will be Stones Throw MC and fellow Zombie contributor Percee P, who just released his long-awaited debut LP.Tip has a couple long-awaited, oft-postponed albums in the works; right now, The Renaissance is due in "early 2008" according to a press release. And in a recent interview with XXLMag.com, he announced that he and Common have formed a group together called the Standard. (These guys are probably pissed.)
The two have not, however, started recording together yet, and the remaining details remain unclear, except that Q-Tip will handle most of the production and that a few tracks may feature Kanye West. In addition to the joint tour, Common has a handful of dates on his own. He's also in the movie American Gangster with Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington coming out soon, and is filming Wanted with Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman and The Night Watchman with Keanu Reaves and Forest Whitaker.As previously reported, Stones Throw will release B-Ball Zombie War on October 2.
