One of my favorite artist in this fickle game we call the "MUSIC BUSINESS" is the emcee/producer Jonathan Davis a.k.a. Kamaal Ibn John Fareed a.k.a. The Abstract b.k.a. Q-Tip! This pioneer is not only the frontman from one of my favorite hip-hop groups A Tribe Called Quest, but he is a chameleon in the game that has remained relevant over two decades. His impact on hip-hp and music as a whole is unpresidented. Q-Tip has written, produced and shared the stage with so many artists over the years, I'm sure he can't remember them all. His musical archives are FULL of classics that even your grandmother probably knows and loves.

This mixx is dedicated my man Kamaal. I compiled some of my favorite Q-Tip collaboration tracks. I dug deep in my archives for most of these songs and it was nice hearing these forgotten tracks again! Now, it's your turn to put ears on this joint and let the head-bobbing begin...
