Kanye West & others played w/ Q-Tip @ Brooklyn Hip Hop Fest (videos)
Kanye rhymes from the crowd
When New York rhymer Q-Tip and his A Tribe Called Quest dropped their classic hip-hop set Midnight Marauders in 1993, Kanye West-an avid fan of the trio-was 19.
So you can imagine the joy he felt last Saturday when his teen idol brought him, now a full-on star himself, up on stage as a surprise guest at the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival to perform Marauders' standout single "Award Tour."
A Chicago native, West looked right at home on the outdoor NY stage. In his retro chic tank top and snapback cap, Kanye didn't just rock with Tip, but also hopped off the stage and into the crowd to perform the title track from his last album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. -[EW]
The "Q-Tip & Friends" set at Brooklyn Hip Hop Fest 2011 was also marked with surprise appearances from Busta Rhymes, Monie Love and Black Thought of The Roots for songs like "Scenario", "Bonita Applebaum", and "Monie In The Middle".
