There’s nothing abstract about a cut that has the head of the Wu mixing it up with the leader of A Tribe Called Quest. Just a Little Dude, the new single by RZA and Q-Tip, sucks you in from the start; with harmonic harp strings that hypnotize until the beat drops. Then its pure lyricism throughout. Brooklyn meets Queens, metaphors 32 bars deep, if hip hop’s in a coma, this Little Dude revived it. These two mic controllers bring hip hop back to its origin; they bring it back to NY, back to the streets.
