Around the time Busta Rhymes came out as a guest at A Tribe Called Quest's "final" shows (opening for Kanye West at Barclays and MSG), it was announced that Busta and ATCQ's Q-Tip would be releasing a collaborative mixtape. That mixtape is out now, and features guest appearances from Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, Talib Kweli, Missy Elliot, Raekwon, and others. That's the artwork above, which clearly riffs on ATCQ's The Low End Theory cover art.
Q-Tip's next #Offline DJ party happens on Wednesday (12/18) at Output (tickets).
You can download the mixtape for free at LiveMixtapes and stream it below...

Missy Elliot hasn't released an album since 2005's The Cookbook, and it's looking like her much-delayed release, Block Party, will finally be seeing the light of day this year. It's becoming one of those Detox-style delayed albums, so we shouldn't get our hopes too high, but a December 18 release date has been set and she recently dropped two singles, "Triple Threat" and "9th Inning" (both featuring Timbaland), which you can stream below.
Missy is also set to make a video for "9th Inning" and if you're a dancer and you live in NYC, she wants your help with it. She's holding dance auditions and the deadline for submissions is TODAY (10/5) at 4 PM. All details on what you need to do to submit are on the flyer, which you can see below.
