Q-Tip Serving As Music Producer and Co-Lyricist In Muhammad Ali Broadway Musical

Q-Tip has joined with other hip-hop acts to help in the formation of an official Broadway musical chronicling the life of the late great boxing champion and activist Muhammad Ali.

Q-Tip, the legendary A Tribe Called Quest member, has joined with other hip-hop acts to help form an official Broadway musical chronicling the life of the late great boxing champion and activist Muhammad Ali.

Along with Q-Tip, the creative team consists of lead producer Richard Willis, composer Teddy Abrams, director and author Clint Dyer, associate music producer Casey Benjamin, and music supervisor Sean Mayes. It was an honor and privilege for Q-Tip to lend his musical prowess to the project as he grew up admiring Ali for his courage and strength in and outside the boxing ring.

“Muhammad Ali has been an inspiration for me my entire life,” Q-Tip said. “I look forward to working with Teddy, Clint, Casey, Sean, and the entire creative team in telling the great man’s story in this form.”

Getting the A Tribe Called Quest founding member to sign on to the project highlights what attendees can expect from the first official musical on the famed boxing legend.

“We are beyond delighted and grateful to have the living legend, Q-Tip, join this extraordinary creative team on ‘Ali,’” Willis said. “Q-Tip’s artistry, knowledge, and experience are unmatched. If that wasn’t enough, to also have the incredible Casey Benjamin and brilliant Sean Mayes joining the team makes this all feel a bit surreal yet fitting for The Greatest.”
