In the Wilson Pickett midnight hour, Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes released—as promised—The Abstract And The Dragon. The collaborative free mixtape with the catchy artwork included some material, as previewed in yesterday’s “Butch & Sundance.”

However, the project also catches up the G.O.O.D. Music artist and the Cash Money Records artist’s newer fans on the history, from the Jive/Elektra Native Tongues era, to the Dr. Dre and Aftermath era, to some of the loosies of late. It’s not all new music (by any means), but it’s an authorized vignette at the works of two of Hip-Hop’s most versatile, ageless, and purist MCs (and producers).
