Busta Rhymes & Q-Tip to Release Joint Mixtape ‘The Abstract and The Dragon’
The long-time collaborators, who recently reunited for ‘Thank You‘ alongside Lil Wayne and Kanye West (well, sorta), will team up for ‘The Abstract and The Dragon’ mixtape, which is set to drop on Dec. 12. ‘The Abstract,’ of course, refers to Tip, while ‘The Dragon’ is a nod to the fire-spitting talents of Mr. Rhymes.
The mixtape will arrive just weeks after hip-hop celebrated the 20th anniversary of A Tribe Called Quest‘s ‘Midnight Marauders,’ on which the Queens crew famously collaborated with Busta for ‘Oh My God.’ The New York natives linked up even earlier on 1991’s ‘Scenario’ when Busta was a member of the now-defunct Leaders of the New School collective.
