As Def Sounds reported yesterday, legendary New York rapper Q-Tip inked a deal with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music Imprint.

Now, Q-Tip called into Hot 97 and spoke to Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg about his new deal, as he says:

“I was at Def Jam and I worked with Kanye since Dark Twisted Fantasy. Kan was like, “Yo you should come work on this.” I came through to Hawaii and we started working on Watch the Throne. He came through and we was just listening to joints. He was like, “What’s up?” I said, “I deejay and I got my thing.” He said, “Man, you should just link up with the team. It don’t make no other sense but to do it.” I was just like, let’s do it.”

Listen to the interview below, as Tip also speaks on the G.O.O.D. Music compilation, his new album title The Last Zulu, working with 2Chainz + more.
