Q-Tip, Leonardo DiCaprio And Jonah Hill Are Writing A Scripted TV Series
Q-Tip is teaming up with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill to write a hip hop drama TV series.
The series will be based on the Native Tongues collective that was created by A Tribe Called Quest which dominated hip hop music during the 80’s and 90’s. The conscious movement led by A Tribe Called Quest included De La Soul, Black Sheep, Queen Latifah, and Jungle Brothers, created a pathway for positive and afrocentric lyrics during this time period and has had a lasting effect on hip hop as a whole.
Q-Tip let the world know about this project this morning by posting the following tweet:

While no writer has been announced for the series, DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way, is set to produce it.
