Q-Tip Partners with Leonardo DiCaprio & Jonah Hill For Native Tongues Inspired TV Series

Grammy-winning hip-hop artist Q-Tip is partnering with Wolf Of Wall Street co-stars, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, to develop a scripted TV series loosely based on the rapper’s experience during the Native Tongue era. There is no writer yet for the drama project, which will be produced through DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way and is expected to be taken out to networks next week. Q-Tip, who has been friends with DiCaprio for a long time, is a founding member of the acclaimed hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest, which he started in 1985 with his high school friends Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed jonahhilldicaprioMuhammad and Jarobi White. The drama project will draw from Q-Tip’s experiences with the group and with The Native Tongues collective that A Tribe Called Quest was a member of, which brought together late 1980s and early 1990s hip-hop artists known for their positive-minded, Afrocentric lyrics. The show will reflect on the stories of their friendship and how their music played a part in culture then and influenced the music of today. Q-Tip is repped by CAA; DiCaprio is with LBI; and Hill is with WME and LBI. DiCaprio and Hill currently star in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street, which is nominated for two Golden Globes on Sunday, best film – comedy or musical – and best actor, DiCaprio.
