Well now this looks interesting. Deadline is reporting that longtime friends Q-Tip and Leonardo DiCaprio are teaming up, along with Jonah Hill, to produce a TV series based on Tip’s experiences during the Native Tongues era.
It’s unclear what type of storyline the show will follow, but it’s being described as a drama that will focus on the friendships of the artists involved with the movement and the influence of their music both at the time and now.
The as yet untitled show will be produced through DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company and will be pitched to networks next week. The NT collective, anchored by A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul and The Jungle Brothers was of course one of the most influential and groundbreaking alliances of artists in Rap history, so the stories should be deep.
It’s here. This should be an interesting listen. That joint that leaked earlier showed some promise. Stream and download after the jump and let us know what you think in the comments.

I like how this is sounding. The Abstract & The Dragon drops tonight at the stroke of 12.
Well, this is much better that that art that accompanied the announcement.
In related news, Q-Tip claims he’s producing the next Kanye album with Rick Rubin. Hit the jump for the video.
Busta took to Twitter a little while ago to announce a new mixtape project from himself and Q-Tip, The Abstract & The Dragon. The tape is due out December 12th and will serve as a precursor to Busta’s Extinction Level Event 2 which is due next year. This is pretty exciting news, but 15-year old me would have been through the roof over this concept.
Be sure to check out footage from last night’s Yeezus Tour Stop at the Barclay’s Center, where Busta joined ATCQ for “Scenario”.
