Just days before, over on X/Twitter, while thanking fans for their birthday wishes, Tip first dropped a hint suggesting that new music is on the way.

“Love you guys and thanks for the wishes,” he wrote. “Music coming stay tuned.”

In 2020, Q-Tip teased fans with plans for three solo albums dubbed AlGoRhythms, Riotdiaries, and The Last Zulu, affectionately dubbed the “all 3” project. His last solo album, Kamaal the Abstract, dropped in 2009, following a shelved release in 2002 after his 1999 debut, Amplified.
