    The Abstract is curating this year's Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, which judging by the mixtape, could be a special one.

    We previously brought you word of Q-Tip's curated incarnation of this year's Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, coming to us July 11 - 16 in Dumbo. Though the festival's actual lineup still isn't entirely announced, we're sated just a little bit today courtesy of a grip of great artists.

    Today, the festival, with the help of Brooklyn Bodega, is dropping a free mixtape through iTunes. And if this gratis release is any indication of what's to come for the fest, we all might be in hip-hop heaven during summer's dog days.

    Here's the actual track list, quite the doozey:

    Black Milk - "Welcome" (Gotta Go)
    Diamond District - "Off The Late Night"
    Kalae All Day - "Sun, Moon and Stars"
    KRS-One - "Hip Hop Lives"
    Leela James - "Party All Night"
    Pharoache Monch - "Shine" (feat. Mela Machinko)
    Random Axe - "The Hex"
    Shad - "Rose Garden" Smif-n-Wessun - "Wrekonize"
    Talib Kweli - "Go Now"
