Download this free Q-Tip mixtape by Brooklyn-based DJ-producer J.Period
Q-Tip, from seminal rap group A Tribe Called Quest, is no stranger to record company politics. His 2002 album Kamaal The Abstract was dropped by Arista Records for not being commercial enough. So it’s not surprising that Q-Tip appears to be forging his own path, starting with the release of The [Abstract] Best Volume One, an impressive downloadable “mixtape” from DJ-producer J.Period.
It features classic Tribe tracks alongside contributions from the likes of De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, ?uestlove, Black Thought, Talib Kweli and Pharoahe Monch. But be warned, at 175Mb it’s a mammoth download. Click here.
