Q-Tip has decided to open up about his past relationship with Janet Jackson.
During a recent interview with famed battle rapper Math Hoffa, the A Tribe Called Quest founder goes in-depth on how he met and eventually began dating the youngest of the Jackson family.
Tip states that he met Jackson on the set of 1992 hit Poetic Justice, where he played her boyfriend at the beginning of the film. Five years later they would collaborate on the 1997 song, “Got ‘til It’s Gone.” The two began dating shortly after that.
“We started dating after that,” Q-Tip said. “It be cool and s***. She be making eggs and s*** and I’ll be chilling like, ‘Yo, that’s Penny! to myself. I love her to death and it’s like she’s a Jackson. That’s Black royalty.”
