Collabos and Posse Cuts

The music industry has seen artist collaborations since the 50s and 60s, and Hip Hop is no exception with its fair share of collabos and posse cuts hitting wax. More often than not in early Hip Hop, the coming together of 2 artists was to demonstrate crew allegiances, rather than being industry-created for financial reasons. Later on in the forthcoming weeks we will bring you some of the deffest posse cuts of all time, but to get you in the mood early, here's a nice 3 emcee collabo from 1991.
From Big Daddy Kane's "Prince of Darkness" LP, here we see Kane bring on Q-Tip (A Tribe Called Quest) and Busta Rhymes (Leaders of the New School) to join him over the Kelly's Heroes break.
If you don't own this already, aim to find the promo only double vinyl LP for the superior pressing quality.
