For everyone who has been waiting patiently for A Tribe Called Quest frontman Q-Tip’s follow-up to his solo debut, Amplified, the wait is almost over. On November 4, fans will finally get their hands on a copy of The Renaissance (presumably, on their way to vote in the U.S. presidential election). On the album’s first single, Gettin’ Up, ‘Tip showed longtime fans that he is still in Vivrant Thing mode over the late J. Dilla‘s sample of Black Ivory’s You And I. For the official remix, the original verses remain, though Swizz Beatz takes charge with a sample of the Puff Daddy classic It’s All About the Benjamins, and another emcee we haven’t heard from in a while spits twelve introductory bars. That’s right; Eve is back and ready to rep for the ladies once again!
