We are delighted to announce the start of a new monthly called Offline with Grammy award-winning, music icon Q-Tip at Irving Plaza. The first one will be on June 15th.
Offline is a party that will take you back to the real New York, real music, real people. Q-Tip has been throwing some of the best parties in New York for a long, long time and we are very happy to team up with him.
Modern hip hop and R&B music can both arguably be divided into pre- and post-A Tribe Called Quest, and the musical efforts of its lead MC and producer Kamaal Ibn John Fareed - better known to the world as Q-Tip. ATCQ's 1990 debut, People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, introduced Q-Tip's iconoclast stance. In 1999, he dropped his first solo album Amplified, featuring the career-defining hip pop hits "Vivrant Thing" and "Breathe and Stop." Produced primarily by Q-Tip with plenty of live instrumentation and a love fixation, 2008's The Renaissance marks the return of one of the most recognizable voices and individualist figures in all of hip hop.
