Q-Tip Talks 'Illmatic', J Dilla, Kanye West and More with Chairman Mao: Red Bull Music Academy

These Red Bull Music Academy lectures are consistently great.

Here, one of hip hop's must under-appreciated producers talks to Chairman Mao (Ego Trip and more) on the role he has played in some of hip hop's most important moments: including the creation of 'Illmatic'; J Dilla; and how on 'MBDTF', Kanye West looked to Tip for help on recreating the Mobb Deep drum feel.

Sidenote: Go back and listen to the drums on 'Midnight Marauders', then listen to 'The Infamous'.

Sidenote: Q-Tip gave Swizz Beats the Justice records that he sampled on 'On To The Next One' for Jay Z.
