Despite being greatly missed on Cruel Summer (even though he recorded for it), Q-Tip is still making plenty of music, we just don’t know when we'll get to hear it. Will there be a Cruel Winter? When is The Last Zulu dropping? Tip stays relevant like a drug dealer during the drought and we are the fiends.

Despite the fact that he's lent exceptional production to albums like My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Watch The Throne, his headlining "Q-Tip & Friends" set at last year's Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival also proved that he can still rock the mic. In an interview with Complex, Q said heat is on the way, but until release dates are announced, everyone has to wait.
