Mick Boogie – Excursions: Rarities and Remixes of ATCQ (Mixtape)

As you may or may not know when it comes to concise, really thoughtful and just all out dope mixtapes Mick Boogie has been supplying em' for years and now he's finally brought his touch to the greatest group of all time...

While some of the footage contained in the new ATCQ documentary really brought me down (the tension between Phife and Tip really was a downer man) this tape brings me right back up as it comes off more like an album we never got from the group rather than a traditional mixtape...I'll let Mick explain what's goin down though:

A Tribe Called Quest is one of my favorite groups of all time… in any genre of music. After seeing Michael Rapaport’s amazing documentary on the group, I felt inspired to put together a mix and this is the end result. This is NOT a greatest hits mix. This mix is for the true Tribe fans only… the die-hards who know every lyric and remember every interlude. I thought it would be cool to basically create the “lost” Tribe album… with all the rare songs, demos, limited-edition remixes, and collaborations you may have missed over the years. -Mick Boogie
I assure you, there will be few mixtapes this year that are gonna be able to mess with this one...Mick, you out-did yaself brutha...
