The renaissance man

March 12, 2009

That’s actually how I felt after Q-Tip‘s performance last night in Brussels.  Almost 2000 fans attended his show in what would become A legendary night.  I was with Tip a couple of hours before the show, actually was with him and a doctor, being ill from the night before in Amsterdam.  So, seeing him sick like that I couldn’t imagine him rockin’ the crowd a 100%.  Well, I must say, he jumped on stage (probably with a cup of tea and honey) and he ripped it.  There’s not much to say about it because it was pretty much perfect for me; being technical tells me that it’s usually hard for a hiphop artist to have a band playing over the beats and covering extra interlude parts etc… but with this band, shit they were really tight giving the beats another layer like wow!!!  Q-Tip shouldn’t sing with a broken voice but who cares, here it’s all about the energy, I’ve never really seen a crowd going wild from the first track till the end.  You know what, when the lights went on (and background music played in the room) after Q-Tip left the stage, people stayed inside, nobody left and he had to come back again and again.  It was insane.  All the classics, all the band members, including Robert Glasper were incredible and Q-Tip was the true Master of Ceremony.  Hopefully you guys got tickets for the Roundhouse because it will be sick, I know London is really expecting the man.
If you have no ticket you still have the chance to see Q-Tip at the Black Lotus Karate Club for a nice aftershow party with Q-Tip and Gilles and the whole crew, make sure to be there.  Voila, I have nothing more to say but Q-Tip has a little something to say:
Can you kick it?
