Listen To These Cuts You’ll Agree
A Tribe Comeback Is Needed
By Clayton Ruley

They are pioneers and are respected worldwide for their Hip Hop infused with blues, jazz, funk and soul.
You can hear their influences in today’s groups such as The Roots, Outkast, Little Brother, Black Star and Slum Village. They are talking of comeback but we all know talk is cheap. Give us results!

Who am I speaking of?

A Tribe Called Quest, of course.

Their first three album were considered classic People‘s Instinctive Travels and Paths Of Rhythm, The Low End Theory, and Midnight Marauders the group went through growing pains and put out two lesser but still better than most albums in Beats, Rhymes and Life and The Love Movement.

The group split with Ali Shaheed Muhammad doing production work for Lucy Pearl and others and Q-Tip and Phife Dawg doing their solo things (Amplified and Ventilation: Da LP, respectively) but it wasn’t the same. We needed the back and forth the chemistry that made us love Hip Hop.

So to Tribe please come back and do your damn thing! We have missed you presence in the game and with you guys back we can start returning to basics of Hip Hop.
Check out my top 10 of the Tribe. Go to your regular music supplier and check these tunes.
