During a talk hosted by the Red Bull Music Academy, legendary Queens hip-hop artist Q-Tip played a Kanye West track that didn't make the final cut of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Some may recall the song, entitled "Mama's Boyfriend", having initially caused some buzz 3 years ago when a suit and tie-clad Kanye performed an a'capella version of the song whilst standing on a table at Facebook headquarters. Q-tip's offers up some commentary regarding the track (beginning around 1:36:00, for those uninterested in the rest of the lecture), primarily discussing his involvement in the song's production. He also does a pretty stellar Ye impersonation.
