You Was My N***a When Push Came To Shove

For obvious reasons, great emcees are often overlooked as producers. In addition to contributing to A Tribe Called Quest's classic production as a third of the Ummah, Q-Tip blessed some different five footers (Mobb Deep) with The Infamous' 'Give Up The Goods,' 'Temperature's Rising,' and 'Drink Away The Pain.' 'Crooklyn' was vaguely credited as 'Produced by A Tribe Called Quest.' And as his simple, effective vocals on NaS' 'One Love' suggest, The Abstract did in fact back the kite to his homie.

Large Professor remixed it.

Q-Tip production could be a series in itself...nice post. Notable slept-on Abstract beats: JB's "On the Road Again" remix and Apache's "Gangsta Bitch." Speaking of Apache, might be nice to tie it back to the Large Pro theme with the dancehall-tinged "Hey Girl."

Sure Tip had some classics, but his contribution to 'Streets Disciple' was a clunker. Lazy P-Funk sample and an off key Kelis.
