Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip have just released a new collaborative mixtape, called The Abstract & the Dragon.

The 28-song mixtape is laced with new collaborations, remixes and old school hits of their own (“Scenario,” “Vivrant Thing”). The rappers gave fans a taste of “The Abstract & The Dragon” with the fun “Thank You” single which features Kanye West and Lil Wayne. While working on his solo album, “The Last Zulu,” Q-Tip is also producing Kanye West’s upcoming summer 2014 album alongside Rick Rubin. Busta Rhyme’s own solo album, “ELE 2 (Extinction Level Event 2),” will debut next year.

While it’s only comprised of a handful of original tracks, The Abstract And The Dragon is a cohesive mix of Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip’s old and new material.

Seal my heart and break my pride, I’ve nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide. Align my heart, my body, my mind, to face what I’ve done and do my time

The Dragon and The Abstract…“Thank You”

I Don't Speak

I don’t speak.
Every person I have met has tried, they all think I can.
I don’t speak, I sing.
I sing of waterfalls made of galaxies, and rain made of star dust. I sing the stories untold by man. I sing of the demos with kind hearts and the angels with tainted souls. I sing of the moons love of the sun, the sparkling silver ocean, the swirling universe that is held in those hazel eyes.
I don’t speak, I listen.
I place my ear against the Earth and listen to it breathe. I listen to the birds singing of battles once lost. I listen to the fairies as they feed the flowers and take the children to play in the hollow hills. I listen to the dragons swarming around my head, breathing fire into my veins. I listen to the tide of a nebula crash against porcelain skin.
But I never speak, and they know that.
I smell the bitter stench of iron, feel the copper taste in my mouth cover my whole body.
I don’t speak, I feel.
I feel the salty wind carrying the years of a thousand lost souls like me. I feel the heat of the stars as they pass by, feel the cold smoothness of a floor made of sapphire. I feel the pounding in my head and soon all over my body as the dragons roar. I feel the doubt and regret and rage of everyone all at once.
Even now, as the pounding get louder, shaking my very soul, and the burning melts my bones, I don’t speak.
I can feel every muscle in my body slowly melt away into the soil. The pounding stops, I can hear gasps, cries for help, screaming. I can feel warm skin against mine.
But I never speak, because the dragons are here.
And chasing them took away my voice.

with everyone complaining about the simplicity of stained, i’m waiting for the staff to release the most heinously complex and cluttered tert in history

and for people to then complain about that one too

idk about y’all but i’d rather have an instagram filter that actually works to make some funky color combos than a literal piece of abstract modern art slapped onto my dragon to make it look like something straight out picasso’s nightmares
