Q-Tip Is The Kennedy Center’s First Artistic Director Of Hip-Hop


[youtube id=”y9GxtnkMiis”]Q-Tip has been named as the first hip-hop artistic director at The Kennedy Center. Beginning this summer he will curate hip-hop shows that will incorporate a comprehensive representation of the music and culture. There is no doubt that Kendrick Lamar’s quickly sold-out concert at The Kennedy Center last year influenced the decision to place Q-Tip in his new role. In this video, he talks about hip-hop’s importance right now and how excited he is to start his work at the center.
