A Tribe Called Quest front man Q-Tip has reportedly enlisted presidential hopeful Barack Obama for his upcoming solo album, The Renaissance.

"I've got Norah Jones on there, but Barack is the big one," Tip told the New York Post's Page 6. "You'll see what happens, I can't reveal too much."

Along with Obama, who will be prominently featured on one song, Spike Lee will also make a political guest appearance on the album, set to drop this June.

The Renaissance will be the Queens rapper's first solo CD since 1999's Amplified. The artist's sophomore album, Kamaal The Abstract, was shelved after Q-Tip's label, Arista, considered the album too experimental. The album was supposed to come out in 2002.

In related Obama news, the Illinois Senator won the Wyoming caucus this weekend. Obama had 61 percent, or 5,378 votes, to contender Hillary Clinton's 38 percent, or 3,312 votes, according to the Associated Press. Obama won seven delegates and Clinton won five.
