Busta took to Twitter a little while ago to announce a new mixtape project from himself and Q-Tip, The Abstract & The Dragon. The tape is due out December 12th and will serve as a precursor to Busta’s Extinction Level Event 2 which is due next year. This is pretty exciting news, but 15-year old me would have been through the roof over this concept.
Be sure to check out footage from last night’s Yeezus Tour Stop at the Barclay’s Center, where Busta joined ATCQ for “Scenario”.

There were a lot of The Black Album remix projects that dropped after the Jay Z acapellas for the LP were made available to the world, most notably Danger Mouse’s The Grey Album, which featured all beats constructed using samples from The Beatles’ The White Album (great concept). But in my humble opinion, DJ Lt. Dan put out the best The Black Album remix project. On The Black Remixes: Back to Basics, Lt. Dan (who also has one of the illest DJ drops ever, sampling Forrest Gump’s voice), put together what he billed on the cover as “a thematic prequel to Reasonable Doubt.” It aligned itself with the premise of the album by matching up Hov’s vocals with classic early ’90s beats. And as far as blends go, these shits are fire. We’ve all heard DJs sound wack trying to do blends, whether the vocals are off-beat, or the pairing of the vocals and instrumentals just don’t make sense. But that’s not the case here, at all.
Since the tape is virtually unavailable online, we thought we’d contribute to The Black Album 10th anniversary madness by posting it here as part of our Mixtape Memories series. Thank us later. And big shout to Lt. Dan, wherever you are. The game needs more heat from you!
