It's a moment that some hip-hop heads have fantasized about for more than 20 years. The long-awaited question to what, in fact, is the scenario. The ultimate "Oh My God." A collaboration between two of New York's most revered rappers, announced suddenly just a few weeks ago, as many fans were no doubt mourning the end of A Tribe Called Quest.
Its cover references the 1991 classic that set so much of it in motion, Tribe's The Low End Theory. Its single makes a nod to the artists' current labels, YMCMB and G.O.O.D. Music, with a video that features cameos from Kanye West and Lil Wayne. Its vibe is, as the second leaked track suggests, a camaraderie on par with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Its pedigree is unfuckwithable.
