Busta Rhymes And Q-Tip Release New Mixtape Trailer With Live Performance Clips

Ahead of the release of their highly-anticipated mixtapeThe Abstract And The Dragon, which drops this Thursday, Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip dropped a mixtape trailer that goes beyond merely hyping up the tape; after all, the former Tribe man and the Leader of the New School already stirred the hip-hop world into a frenzy with their latest release, “Thank You” featuring Kanye West and Lil Wayne.

Instead, the clip is a 4 and a half-minute video montage, largely narrated by Busta, with live performance scenes, bits and pieces from interviews and television performances throughout the years, and even a piece of an interview from the late Chris Lighty, whose Violator Management was Busta’s longtime management company. It’s well-worth checking out the video (above), and just because it’s been an hour or two since you last took it for a spin, listen again to “Thank You” and count your lucky stars that these two have linked up for a full project’s-worth of material. I know I will be.
