In the interest of time (and bandwidth), I know I’m missing a couple – notably, Jungle Brothers’ Black is Black; Nas’ One Love (produced by Tip, who also sings the chorus); Organized Konfusion’s Let’s Organize (another chorus-only refrain for Tip).
However, on this side, you’ll get a previously unreleased De La Soul track from the A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays CD single and a Buddy remix that’s just about as great as the original; ditto for the Scenario remix. And, yeah, that’s Janet Jackson. What of it?
What else am I missing?
Essential Q-Tip Mix, Side B :
7. Janet Jackson (feat. Q-Tip, Joni Mitchell) | Got Til It’s Gone
8. De La Soul (feat. Q-Tip, Phife and others) | Buddy (remix)
9. Del the Funky Homosapien (feat. Q-Tip, Pep Love) | The Undisputed Champs
10. Beastie Boys (feat. Q-Tip) | Get It Together

Also, check out the Phoenix New Times’ Ear Infection blog, to which I provided my top three hip-hop albums of the year as part of its 2006 Pandemic Poll. Who knows, maybe I’ll even get a list on my own blog of my albums/songs of the year.
