I didn’t hear it until the album came out, and when I did, I was like, ‘Oh shit, y’all niggas is crazy,’” Q-Tip says, still in awe. “I love them. There’s not enough you can say about them.”
“Together” wasn’t the only collaboration between Tip and the Beasties; there’s at least one unreleased collaboration. Q-Tip says, “I’ve got verses from AdRock, who pulled up on us in New York, and a young Pharrell, rapping over ‘Midnight’ from Midnight Marauders,” Tribe’s third album, which features the Beastie Boys on its cover.
