Q (UK) - - 50 Albums Of The Year -

The Back­story: Eigh­teen years after their last one, the New York rap­pers for­get their dif­fer­ences to record their sixth LP. And their last, as key player Phife Dawg died be­fore com­ple­tion. The Clincher: Proof that rap, like a martial art, is not a young man’s game, but best when prac­tised by mas­ters of the form. And that Q-Tip re­mains not just a cham­pion rhymer, but hip-hop’s most thought­ful pro­ducer. What They Say: “We didn’t want to come back and be wack. You want to be rel­e­vant.” Q-Tip Key Track: Lost Some­body. TK
