Q-Tip headlined the 2011 Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. The event will be remembered as the most star-studded edition of the concert’s seven-year history.

Tip got off to a slow start, performing songs like “Verses from the Abstract” and “Ride” before bringing out Monie Love for “Buddy.” Tip followed up by bringing out Black Thought of The Roots for the band’s “Ode to Hip-Hop (Love of My Life)” and “Next Movement” before offering up Tribe staples like “Bonita Applebum” and “Electric Relaxation.” Tip’s set quickly went from dope to epic when Busta Rhymes surprised the snuck up on stage for a riotous performance of his classic verse on “Scenario” followed by a rendition of his tongue-twisting rhyme on Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now.” The festival appeared to be all but done when Kanye West, ironically sporting a snap back hat backwards and a jersey reminiscent of ’90s Phife Dawg, took the stage to perform “Dark Fantasy,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothin'” and “All of the Lights.” Yeezy and Busta then stayed on stage to support Tip’s seemingly show-closing “Award Tour.”
