Q-Tip + Prince.

I heard about this near-miracle a few weeks ago. I'm so glad footage surfaced. This was immediately added to my Favorites. It might just be the illest thing ever.

For those who don't know the back story, Prince was chilling at the Q-Tip show at the HOB in Las Vegas. Maybe he was bored, maybe he was inspired, but for whatever reason he decided he wanted to be part of the performance. He proceeded to jump on stage, take the guitar from the guitar player and start rocking. Why? Because he's Prince and because he can. Nothing he does will ever surprise me. Here's the quote from DJ Scratch who was DJing for Tip during the performance:

“Yo, while me and Q-tip were performing “Vivrant Thing” in Vegas last night….this n—a Prince walked out on the stage, took the guitar from our guitar player and just started rocking! None of us knew he was there until he popped up on the stage….then the n—a vanished like Batman, LOL!

The sound crew said Prince was in the balcony watching the show from the very beginning (The balcony was closed off). Then when “Vivrant Thing” came out, he just came backstage and walked out on stage.

None of us knew what was happening, then when we finished the show he was gone LOL!”

I wonder if Q-Tip went back to Prince's crib for homemade pancakes after the show. God, I love hip-hop.
