Q-Tip’s life may be coming to the small screen this fall, thanks to his longtime buddy Leonardo DiCaprio.

According to Deadline, the two are developing a scripted TV series together that will be loosely based on Q’s experience with his hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest during the early ’80s and ’90s.

The show will reportedly reflect on Q-Tip’s friendship with his fellow Tribe bandmates — Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi White — who he’s known since high school. The band’s dynamic was previously covered in the 2011 documentary Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest, directed by actor Michael Rapaport.
