Download Busta Rhymes and Q Tip's new release "The Abstract and The Dragon"

Raowr and raowr. Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes have unleashed the long-slumbering dungeon dragon that made A Tribe Called Quest‘s “Scenario” the ultimate sing-along hip-hop anthem of all time and then proceed to spread it’s dragon-juice all over a full-length collaborative mixtape. You know from the door this mixtape release is an event of historic proportions, just from the names on across the top. But from the release of “Thank You” and “Butch & Sundance” you know it’s a fly historical event with a booming soundsystem and deadly wordplay. We could say more but truthfully we’d rather listen along with you and analyze afterwards. Log on to theabstractandthedragon.com to get the tape or just check the player from Live Mixtapes below to stream download and get the tracklisting. That’s all you need really–enjoy and we’ll discuss in the morning. There’s only have one more thing we have to add and that’s this: “I had a dream that my mans came by the studio last night. And my mans’ name was…”

    Regurgitated stuff from the 90’s which really doesn’t hold up today. It’s like playing 8-bit games re-released as a compilation – just isn’t the same anymore – All played out.

    Out of sheer respect this is worth a download. No doubt.

  • Htownbassman

    anyone with a negative comment has no clue what a real EMCEE is..lyrically this mix tape is dope….#oldschoolallday

  • baconcheeswhiz89

    you kids and your wack trap better download this and experience something special, this mixtape brings back the old school boom bap from the 90’s daisy age where everything was just perfect….don’t download if your into something that you’re really not(money, slapping hoes, and overall non talentless artist)

    Buster Rhymes is one of the most overrated rappers there is he has a great voice but that’s where it ends. And yes this Mixtape is good in parts, but as someone said earlier at times its like playing an 8 bit video game.
    The track Come On Down is worth listening to a few times though.

    I can see Last Zulu being a disappointment too unless the Boombap is done in a modern way which competes with current music.
