The surviving members of A Tribe Called Quest had their first Saturday Night Live appearance last night and performed music from their first album in 18 years. The seminal group urged for unity  on “We the People” (complete with a Phife Dawg tribute), and were accompanied by extended family Consequence and Busta Rhymes on “Space Program.”

Tribe’s excellent new album, Thank You for Your Service, is in stores now.

Diddy

Tonight and tomorrow, The Bad Boy Reunion tours kick off at the Barclays Center. This morning, Diddy was joined by his Bad Boy family and offered a free nationwide preview for fans. The Lox, Lil Kim, 112, Mase, French Montana and even Busta Rhymes got in on the action. Whatever you think of Diddy, the man is the epitome of Hip-Hop longevity.

Busta Rhymes handles chorus duties on new leak off Fashawn’s The Ecology (February). The beat bangs heavy with a hint of funk.

20 years deep and still catching bodies. M.O.P. and Busta Rhymes reunite in the “Broad Dalight” video to chronicle a robbery attempt on bad (murderously bad). M.O.P. has a new retrospective collection entitled M.O.P. – 20 Years and Still Gunnin: The Ammo Years, that’s available now.

Busta Rhymes is such a fan of this track that’s redone for a third time featuring Everlast. The other, which include the well-known Eminem feature and solo joint, make up Busta’s new The Clash EP, available for purchase HERE. Anyone else thrown off by the sound of Everlast’s voice? Either it’s the mixing or the former House of Pain frontman has completely lost the guttural vocals that was his trademark post 90s.

BustaRhymes_ToyotaSienna

It’s finally been settled. If you had any remaining doubts that Busta Rhymes will hop on any song (and I mean any song), just listen to this track from Toyota on their new 2015 Sienna aka “the swagger wagon.” That Toyota check must be phenomenal. Pops got bars, though.

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.
