We have Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip for bringing us an early Christmas present this week. Busta and Tip are giving fans a taste of something new to whet our appetite in anticipation of new albums expected by both artists in 2014. On Thursday when the rest of the world was fawning over Beyoncé’s release, the two unleashed an exclusive mix-tape for FREE download.
Many thanks to Daff Piff and Pitchfork for making this album available on their sites. For the ATCQ fan this mixtape will bring back memories of the powerhouse years of A Tribe Called Quest and the formidable synergy they built with Busta Rhymes. The 28 track album is choc full of remixes, collabos, new verses, repurposed samples (“Gettin’ Up”) and a nod to the genius of Dilla.
I could say more, but if you are a fan of A Tribe Called Quest and Busta Rhymes, you’ve probably already downloaded your copy. If not, Merry Christmas and tell a friend!
