As A Tribe Called Quest performed one last time this past Saturday, opening for https://twitter.com/kanyewest”>Kanye West’s http://kanyewest.com/”>Yeezus Tour at http://thegarden.com” target=”_blank”>Madison Square Garden. And half way through http://youtube.com/watch?v=Q6TLWqn82J4″>”Scenario,” https://twitter.com/busabusss”>Busta Rhymes rushed onto the stage full of energy to say farewell to the crew that gave him his first real shot. So it’s really no surprise to see https://twitter.com/QtipTheAbstract”>Q-Tip and Kanye (and https://twitter.com/LilTunechi”>Lil’ Wayne) featuring in Busta’s new video “Thank You,” the first track to release from the forthcoming Extinction Level Event 2 (ELE2).
A bulk of the video is a lyrical back-and-forth between the long time collaborators over a sample from the classic club track https://soundcloud.com/melvinandco/i-want-to-thank-you-re-edit-m”>”I Want To Thank You” by Alicia Myers, with scattered appearances from Mr. West and Weezy. If “Thank You” is any indication of what to expect from ELE2, the 16-year wait for a sequel will be well worth it.
While there’s no scheduled release date for ELE2, Busta and Q-Tip will be releasing an official mixtape titled The Abstract & The Dragon, December 12, 2013.
