Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip have put together a mixtape that doubles as a trip down memory lane and a showcase of their still formidable talents. Clocking in at 28 tracks, you know off the bat that this isn’t all new material. What the duo does is flip new verses over classic material (Tribe’s “God Lives Through,” Dilla’s “Lightworks,” for example) while mixing in fresh tracks. Because you’re still getting new verses over the classics, the tape keeps your attention throughout. A more thorough review will come later today, but for now hit that download link and enjoy. If you’re still skeptical, check out the provided samples.
