Q-Tip Rapper Q-Tip is set to pay tribute to Michael Jackson at his New York show on Saturday to mark the late King of Pop's upcoming birthday.

The former A Tribe Called Quest star is playing the Irving Plaza with DJ Spinna, and the duo will use the gig to remember Jackson, who would have turned 53 on Monday.

Q-Tip says, "Michael Jackson was a huge influence on my music and was an inspiration to me and so many others. I want to bring people together to celebrate the man, his music and his legacy that will undoubtedly live on forever!"
