Q-Tip to write ‘Industry Rules’ book

Rapper will reveal thoughts on entertainment business, love

Q-Tip to write ‘Industry Rules’ book
Q-Tip is set to write a book in which he will reveal his insight into the entertainment business, as well as his thoughts on love and fashion.

The former A Tribe Called Quest frontman has called the book ‘Industry Rules’ and is based on a concept from a Tribe Called Quest track ‘Check The Rhime’ in which he raps that "Industry rule #4080/Record company people are shady” .

"It was important to me to write a book because on the whole, I feel we could all be more literate, and as an artist, I’m always looking for ways to do something cool, different, and both light and introspective at the same time,” Q-Tip said, according to allhiphop.com .

The rapper will also publish accounts of his time in the music industry, including tales of his personal life.

As previously reported, Q-Tip’s album ‘Kamaal The Abstract’ will be released this September. It was recorded in 2001.
