We previously heard from DJ Mick Boogie when he again linked with DJ Jazzy Jeff to provide the soundtrack to your summer parties and chill-out sessions. And in case that wasn’t enough for you, Boogie’s back with even more free/awesome goodness. He has put together nearly 80 minutes worth of A Tribe Called Quest rarities and remixes on the Excursions mix. I shouldn’t have to write what I’m about to write, but shit, I’m doing it anyway. You need to download this. That especially goes for anyone with a slight love for hip-hop and, of course, Tribe. Consider this a means of holding you over until the Beats, Rhymes & Life documentary hits your town.
Boogie released the mix with the following message:
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. I hope when you enjoy this as much as I do, and hear some things you have never heard before. Special thank you to UNDRCRWN for the amazing artwork. Long live A Tribe Called Quest!
