After old rap guys Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip reunited on the excellent new tracks “Thank You” and “Butch & Sundance,” with both of them sounding absolutely reinvigorated, expectations were high for their new mixtape The Abstract & The Dragon. As it turns out, the new tape is not an all-new full-length, which is what most of us were hoping for. Still, it’s a deeply fun listen: A compilation of all their collaborations throughout the years (and there have been a lot of them), mixed in with a few new collabs, some skits where they’re happily talking to each other, and a few surprises like a version of a Tribe Called Quest’s “Oh My God” with a verse from Busta. (He was just on the hook on the original track.) Download the mixtape at Livemixtapes.
