Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip announced the release of their forthcoming The Abstract And The Dragon mixtape today (November 21).
The collaborative project is due December 12.
Busta Rhymes, formerly of Leaders Of The New School, and Q-Tip, a member of A Tribe Called Quest, have collaborated extensively throughout their careers, including the 1991 A Tribe Called Quest song “Scenario.”
On the song, Busta Rhymes references a dragon in his lyrics, which is likely where his “The Dragon” moniker comes from.
Q-Tip, who has produced material for Busta Rhymes throughout his solo recording career, has referred to himself as “The Abstract Poet” throughout his career.
A Tribe Called Quest opened for Kanye West on the “Yeezus Tour” yesterday (November 20) and was joined by Busta Rhymes during its performance of “Scenario.”
Busta Rhymes also features Q-Tip, Lil Wayne and Kanye West on his song “Thank You.” The song’s video is expected to be released soon.
The Abstract And The Dragon cover art is as follows.
