Please go and download this! HERE!
"Celebrated for his award-winning remix collaborations with hip hop & R&B elite (Lauryn Hill, Kanye West, The Roots, Mary J. Blige), DJ/Producer J.Period (3X MTV Top DJs, 2X Mixtape DJ of the Year) has redefined the mixtape game with documentary-style "Best of" collections that blend hits, remixes and behind-the-scenes interview footage into comprehensive musical biographies. On February 10, 2009, J.Period elevates this documentary style to new heights with The [Abstract] Best, Vol 1, a tribute to hip hop icon, Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest), featuring exclusive new tracks from an All-Star lineup of hip hop legends and rising stars: De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, ?uestlove, Black Thought, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Consequence, Zion I, Skillz, Black Sheep, Kid Cudi and Blu -- all paying tribute to The Abstract's legacy.
This unprecedented mixtape arrives on the heels of Q-Tip's critically-acclaimed album, The Renaissance (released November 4), and urges a new generation of fans to take note of Q-Tip's tremendous contributions to hip hop throughout his career. Few artists have shaped both an entire generation of MCs (see: Common, Mos Def, Andre 3000), and an entire generation of producers (see: Kanye West, 9th Wonder, Pharrell), quite like The Abstract."
