j. period + q-tip = the abstract

j. period is known to be one of the best remix dj's around, previously working with kanye, lauryn hill, mary j. blige and the roots. for the past few months, he's been working on what many have called his most ambitious remix project...a tribute to q-tip.

it includes tracks from talib kweli, de la soul, blackthought, ?uestlove, busta rhymes, blu, kid cudi and so many more.

also, take a look at the fine detail in the artwork. it's a project that everybody put a lot of good energy into it.

the [abstract] best

peep the thought process from the press release:
"What defines an icon? In hip hop, it is an artist whose influence is immeasurable, whose stature exceeds his contemporaries, whose music defines the cultural ethos of a generation. MCs like Biggie, 2Pac, Jay-Z, Nas. Producers like Kanye West, Dr. Dre or Timbaland. Yet in the history of hip hop, only one artist has quietly shaped an entire generation of MCs (see: Common, Mos Def, Andre 3000) and also an entire generation of producers (see: Kanye West, 9th Wonder, Pharrell): The Abstract himself, Q-Tip.

On Feb 10, 2009, Mixtape King J.Period elevates his documentary style to new heights to pay respect to this incomparable hip hop icon with The [Abstract] Best, a comprehensive collection of Q-Tip’s music and production, new remixes, interviews, plus brand new tracks from an All-Star lineup of hip hop heavyweights—paying tribute to The Abstract’s legacy.
