Q-Tip jumps ship (again)

So it looks like another Q-Tip album could be dead and buried. Kamaal the Abstract has just inked a contract with Mowtown, leaving Dreamworks only two years after he left Arista, the label who wouldn't release his self-titled album because it was 'not commercial enough' (or maybe because it was a bit too self indulgent and jazz-noodly). Q-Tip had finished his Dreamworks debut way back in late 2003, and there was even a February 2004 photo-shoot for the album's cover, but with his move to Mowtown it's unclear whether 'Open' will now be released. Oh, and still no word on a possible new album from the Tribe, which means Phife might have to finally get a 9-5 job. Kinda reminds me of that 'Adopt a Rapper' skit on Doggy Fizzle Televizzle....
