A Tribe Called Quest emcee Q-Tip is getting political on his new project. The rapper/producer has tapped presidential hopeful Barack Obama for his upcoming album dubbed 'The Renaissance,' which is set to hit stores in June. Obama won't be rapping on the as-yet-untitled track. Instead, the senator will "speak throughout a song."

"I've got Norah Jones on there, but Barack is the big one. You'll see what happens, I can't reveal too much," Tip told the New York Post's Page Six. Director Spike Lee will also make a guest appearance on the rapper's second solo album.
