Q-Tip Rolls Out The Rhythm Rug

After years of tumult as a solo artist in the fickle world of Hip Hop, rapper Q-Tip has decided to follow an avenue hinted at back in 1991. As part of Hip Hop group A Tribe Called Quest, Mr. Tip rapped ‘Wipe your feet really good on the rhythm rug’ on their golden age hit ‘Can I Kick It?’. In interview the legendary MC disclosed that “It was time to take a walk on the wild side”. He also denied rumours that he has been in talks with Johnson & Johnson about a range of sponsored ear cleaning products.

In an unprecedented move Q has started business in the world of soft furnishings and floor coverings. His lead product, the 'Rhythm Rug', is bound to greet visitors at many a Hip Hop fan’s house in the near future. Q-Tip himself has been an integral part of the design and testing process, he said “It was important that the rug ensured a real good wipe, for two reasons: kicks and carpets”.

The ‘Rhythm Rug’ comes in three different colourways, and whilst the current version does not quote his famous lyric there are plans to include it on future models. Tip stated “I didn’t want to appear big headed, but the demand is there, peeps do wanna wipe their feet on my words”.

The ‘Rhythm Rug’ has an ‘interconnecting circular design with carved detail in 100% polypropylene’ and is ‘available in 4 sizes and 3 colours’. It retails at £21.99 - £69.99, depending on size and is available exclusively in the UK at 24studio’s home shopping website.
