If you didn’t already know, the 14th annual Red Bull Music Academy in New York City wrapped up this past Friday with special guest lecturer Q-Tip dropping in to drop some knowledge. Kicking things off with the playback of “Gettin’ Up” from his Renaissance album, the emcee subsequently dives right in to breaking down the track and reflecting on his music in hindsight. The A Tribe Called Quest veteran then speaks on his career and goes more in-depth with his dissection of songs from his discography in the two-hour video.
