Q-Tip Responds To A Young Rapper's Request To Collab
The Abstract received a sweet hand-written note from a 12-year-old fan requesting his services.
Q-Tip has been on the receiving end of many collaborative requests throughout his career but none as unique as the one he just got via a hand-written letter.
On Friday (August 5), the Abstract took to Instagram to post a sweet request he received from a 12-year-old aspiring MC by the name of Liam Elmore.

“Hi! My name is Liam Elmore. I’m 12 years old. I am a rapper + my rapper name is M.C. Fresh,” the youngster’s letter began. “You are one of my favorite rappers. I was wondering if you wanna be in one of my songs. I only have three songs out, but I’m going to release more.”
He went on to ask Q-Tip if he wanted to come over to his house to record his verse. The A Tribe Called Quest rapper responded by giving MC Fresh his word that he’d listen to his songs and if he liked one, he’d indeed hop on a track.

“I just received your note,” Tip wrote back. “So im writing you back. Thank you for wanting me to be in one of your songs. I remember when i was 11/12 years old how i wanted people to listen to my jams too so Ill search online to find your songs.
“How are your grades in school? Are you being a good son and taking care of mom? I hope so because you gonna need to be sharp so you can read these contracts because record company people are shady. I promise ill listen and if i like it ill be in one of your songs.”

Mickey Factz hopped into the comment section and joked about how he’s going to write a letter to Q-Tip and see if he wants to collaborate. “I’m bout to write something just like this,” the New York rapper wrote.
