Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip go waaay back, and have been making music together for what seems like eons.
So when Bussa Buss and the Tipster announced that they had a mixtape in the works following the buzz their latest tune, the most excellent 'Thank You', earned, us old fullas rejoiced.
There's plenty of The Abstract And The Dragon that you've heard before, making it a fitting snapshot of a great partnership in hip hop.
But as much as we love the old shit, it's the new shit that we want. And new stuff we have.
There's a 'remix' of 'Thank You' (which is basically Kid Capri adding a little flavour on the mix), and a bunch of new tracks ('We Taking Off', 'Butch & Sundance', and the title track).
Am I greedy wanting a little more new stuff? Absolutely.
But hey, the four or five new Busta and Tip tunes on the The Abstract And The Dragon is four or five more than we had yesterday. That's never going to be bad. You can download here, or listen to some of the cuts mentioned above, below.
