You are handed the task to be courageous in your personal lives, to find [the] balance between intellect and instinct… to not let bad choices define you, but to refine you.”In addition to his doctorate, Q-Tip and the rest of A Tribe Called Quest were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year.
