Q-Tip has been working for quite some time on his latest, highly-anticipated solo album, The Last Zulu. Celebrating his 50th birthday on April 10, the legendary mastermind behind A Tribe Called Quest has revealed that the follow-up to 2009’s Kamaal the Abstract will soon be released, noting that two other albums will also be arriving.

The news coincides with the 30th anniversary of the legendary hip-hop group’s debut album, People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, which released on April 17, 1990.

Thank u god willing I will get with u soon.”
