Q-Tip & friend @ Gramercy/Blender Theatre, NYC - OCt 16, 2007 (CRED)
Q-Tip @ Blender

Of course there was something Q-Tip brought that most other CMJ strivers didn’t: an unsinkable catalog. As the driving force behind A Tribe Called Quest, he helped shape alternative hip-hop in the 1990s, earning a lot of good will along the way. And he was in the mood to please on Tuesday, jumping into “Excursions” – the lead track from “The Low End Theory,” Tribe’s breakthrough album – within the first few tunes. [NY Times]
Q-Tip is (unfortunately only) DJing @ Love in NYC tonight.

The Gramercy show was incredible. Top 5 shows I've seen this year.

He wasn't sticking his middle finger out "to" the crowd.

"A special shout out, peace, goes out to all my pals, you see And a middle finger goes for all you punk MCs"

That was during Phifes part of Check The Rhyme

really, scary and angry? im much more afraid of the whiteboy hipsters looking to prove their "edge", of course, you can break their legs like twigs

It is hard to say such a thing is clear.
