Mixtapes are a dime a dozen these days, but good mixtapes are another story. In your travels you've probably found that every mixtape does not deserve a spot in your CD changer or space on your hard drive. However, on February 10th J.Period will drop his best of Q-Tip mixtape, The [Abstract] Best, and if this song with De La Soul is any indication, then you'll be bumping this joint for years to come. De La flips the script on A Tribe Called Quest's "Excursions" and puts their own spin on the classic cut with "Excursions 2009 (Tribute Remix)." In a word, this is dope. But we knew that already; you really can't go wrong with members of the Native Tongues family on a track. Head on over to J.Period's site to download this musical appetizer and go back next Tuesday for the main course of The [Abstract] Best.
