Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Rhythm Roulette fans. While most of y’all don’t deserve shit the way you’ve been wilding in the comments sections this past year, we decided to let it slide and gift you with a new episode featuring the North Carolina legend 9th Wonder.
After linking up at The Record Krate in Raleigh, we joined 9th back at his studio to watch the master at work. With Charly McClain, Jermaine Jackson, and The Temprees at his disposal, the GRAMMY award-winning producer warmed up with a few quick flips before ultimately chopping up Lovemen. The final result was so crazy, Rapsody immediately hopped in the booth to bless it with a proper verse.
What started as a humble graffiti ‘zine in 1996 would soon grow to be one of the most trusted outlets for youth-spawned urban culture. Today, Mass Appeal is a media collective led by authentic voices and inspired minds. We are a platform for radical creatives who are transforming culture.
In 2013, Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip joined forces to release an incredible project called The Abstract And The Dragon. Now, nearly two years later to the day, The Dragon (Busta) returns with a solo conquest—because The Abstract Went On Vacation.
I thought Q-Tip's absence would force the anticipation levels to waver a bit, but then Busta previewed a few tracks on Instagram and it was clear he was more than capable of holding it down.
With The Abstract on an island somewhere, Busta cooked up 13 new tracks with a guest-list that features a healthy mix of both mainstream and indie artists—an art he mastered on 1996's The Coming and 1997's When Disaster Strikes—including Chance the Rapper, Fabolous, Raekwon, DOOM, Roc Marci, BJ the Chicago Kid, Black Milk, Pharrell, Wiz Khalifa, Mary J Blige, and more. Hell, there's even an all-out Leaders Of The New School reunion to help close it out.
Busta might not be the only artist releasing a project today, but it's safe to say The Return Of The Dragon / The Abstract Went On Vacation will stack up against the rest.
