I might have missed a Sundays with A Tribe Called Quest post this week, but I’ll make up for it here.
That’s just the, ahem, tip of the iceberg for J. Period’s tribute to the Abstract Poetic. From his Web site:
To continue to help raise awareness for Q-Tip’s new album, J.Period has enlisted an all-star cast of Native Tongue contributors, including Questlove, Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, De La Soul, Consequence and Black Thought to record exclusive material for the forthcoming “Best Of” tribute mix. Encompassing nearly 20 years of catalog, J.Period’s “Best of Q-Tip” seeks to remind fans of the depth of Q-Tip’s influence and contributions to hip hop, as well as to introduce his music to a new generation of hip hop fans around the globe. The complete mix is scheduled for release in early December, and will also be available as a free download on www.jperiod.com.
And, I might have mentioned this once or twice, but Q-Tip’s new album, The Renaissance, is available Tuesday.
