Mix Of The Day

Q-Tip “Beats Rhymes and Features” by Colm K

Hip-Hop

Hip-Hop tribute mixtapes aren’t anything new and there have certainly been a fair share of ATCQ-themed mixes but hey… that’s not a bad thing necessarily. We don’t complain when there is too much of a good thing.

But also, we’re posting this because we were going to do a forgotten treasure feature on Q-Tip’s verse in Nuyorican Soul’s “I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun” a track that not too many people know about. So we stumbled on this site when looking around of BamaLoveSoul.com a website you should add to your weekly dose of dope music.

The mix is by Colm K, Corkonian, DJ and producer extraordinaire. Very well done. Nothing over the top. Just honoring the Abstract’s great work.
