Music Monday: 2013 Isn’t Done Yet!

Busta Rhymes & Q-Tip - The Abstract and The Dragon

Welcome back LAS! This year has been a pretty good one for music (especially hip-hop) but it’s not quite over yet. Just when I started looking forward to some of next years releases, I ran into a project that slipped under my radar. Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip’s of A Tribe Called Quest recently collaborated and dropped a mixtape titled The Abstract & The Dragon.

Hip-Hop heads will notice that the first track, “God Lives Through,” was also a track on Tribe’s album Midnight Marauders.

I’m a big fan of the throwback sound and flow of Big Daddy Kane on this track.

With the likes of Busta Rhymes, A Tribe Called Quest and Redman, how can you go wrong?

  • This is great, I’ve been a huge fan of A Tribe Called Quest and Q-Tip ever since I heard Bonita Applebum forever ago, and Busta Rhymes is to me one of the rappers who got me into the genre. Thanks man!
