It appears a solution has finally been discovered for all of the longtime major-label artists whose debut albums have collected dust while awaiting release. Case in point: Q (aka Q Da Kid), signed to So So Def for several years was recently transferred to boss Jermaine Dupri‘s newest label venture, Tag Records (yup, as in the body spray brand). Getting ready for his upcoming I Am Him mixtape, Q gets into Untouchable mode with some classic BK street lyricism. Half of the credit here belongs to BUStheProducer for his percussion-heavy beat and sampling of a little-known Biggie verse (from Pudgee Tha Phat Bastard‘s Think Big). While the I Am Him mixtape has no set release date, look for Q to finally get some long-deserved shine on his new label.
