NF: You and Q-Tip are real close. Were you an honorary member of the Ummah?
LP: You could say that. Me and Tip became brothers. Tip was originally relying on engineers to do his beats and he was like ‘I wanna do my own beats on the drum machine’ so I helped him out. I just showed him my little style on the SP-1200 and he took some of that and took it a step further and got busy.
