Def Jam have announced they've signed Q-Tip to G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam records, with his fourth album (The Last Zulu) set to be released in early 2013.

"I’m humbled to be a part of such a storied history," says Q-Tip. "To reconnect with Barry Weiss is a great thing. As far as G.O.O.D. Music, I'm excited to solidify my working relationship with Kanye, and I look forward to all the opportunities that lie ahead in our partnership. I will do my best to present the most cutting edge music I can."

Should be interesting to see how this pans out.
