Rah Rah! Busta Rhymes And Q-Tip Announce Collaborative Mixtape ‘The Abstract And The Dragon’


Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip go back like La-Z-Boy recliners.

From Busa Bus’ breakout verse on A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario” in 1991 (which they performed last night at The Yeezus Tour in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center) to most recently “Thank You,” Busta’s new single that samples Alicia Meyer’s 1981 disco classic “I Want to Thank You,” Kamaal and Busta have rolled deep. So it only makes sense that the two hip-hop legends are collaborating on a full length project: a new mixtape called The Abstract And The Dragon.

The mixtape, which, for the record, has this Queens-born magazine editor straight geeking, drops on Dec. 12.
