- De La Soul, "Buddy (Native Tongue Decision)" feat. Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah, Monie Love (1989) While Q-Tip had been smoothly making the rounds on Jungle Brothers and De La Soul albums, this all-star posse cut marked the debut appearance of Phife Dawg, combining the talents of both A Tribe Called Quest MCs on one track for the first time.
- Jungle Brothers, "Doin' Our Own Dang" feat. De La Soul, Monie Love, A Tribe Called Quest, Queen Latifah (1989) Before Tribe dropped their debut album, every Q-Tip appearance on a Native Tongues track was an event, and his contribution to this partying posse cut was no exception.
- "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo" (1990) Though he dubbed himself "The Abstract," Q-Tip had a natural storyteller's gift for concrete lyrical detail from the jump.
- "Bonita Applebum" (1990) "This is the song that truly birthed the idea of neo-soul," Questlove told Rolling Stone of People's Instinctive's second single.
A Tribe Called Quest is to Hip Hop what Pink Floyd is to Rock ‘n’ Roll. With humble beginnings in Queens, New York, the group blossomed from the friendship of Jonathan Davis (Q-Tip) and Malik ...
- Check The Rhime (1991) “Now here’s a funky introduction of how nice I am / Tell your mother, tell your father, send a telegram” The lead track of one of Hip Hop’s most celebrated albums ever, shines because of the back-and-forth synergy between Q-Tip and Phife, who bounce their lines off each other effortlessly and to perfection.
- Electric Relaxation (1993) “Honey, check it out, you got me mesmerized / With your black hair and your fat-ass thighs / Street poetry is my everyday / But yo, I gotta stop when you trot my way”
- Jazz (We've Got) / Buggin' Out (1991) “Stern firm and young with a laid-back tongue / The aim is to succeed and achieve at 21 / Just like Ringling Brothers, I’ll daze and astound / Captivate the mass, cause the prose was profound / Do it for the strong, we do it for the meek / Boom it in your boom it in your boom it in your Jeep…”
- I Left My Wallet In El Segundo (1990) “I ordered enchiladas and I ate em / Ali had the fruit punch” Released on April 11, 1990, as the first single of their debut album People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, I Left My Wallet In El Segundo was the first introduction to A Tribe Called Quest for most of us.

- “Jazz (We’ve Got)” (from The Low End Theory, 1991) If they didn’t invent jazz-rap on The Low End Theory, Tribe were the first to perfect it. In 1991, incorporating jazz was still fairly unusual in hip-hop production; even the first couple LPs by Gang Starr, a group feted for both Guru and DJ Premier’s reverence and ear for the genre’s many phases, were heavier on funk and R&B breaks than fusion or soul jazz.
- “Scenario” (from The Low End Theory, 1991) Only two things keep this, the legendary closing cut off the second of three straight classic Tribe albums, out of the #1 slot.
- “Award Tour” (from Midnight Marauders, 1993) Tribe’s biggest crossover hit, both in 1993 and since, isn’t enigmatic or complicated or gimmicky, unless getting Trugoy from De La to do a “Night Train”-style itinerary of cities on the hook is a gimmick.
- “God Lives Through” (from Midnight Marauders, 1993) Despite his history of providing memorable guest spots on three Tribe albums and being closely tied in with the group’s history in the minds of fans — check out 2013’s The Abstract And The Dragon mixtape for further reference — we don’t see a lot of Busta Rhymes in the Beats, Rhymes & Life doc.

- “Footprints” The Tribe cribs Donald Byrd’s “Think Twice,” lowers the pitch, and adds some hard drums to deliver a sense of immediacy.
- “Hot Sex” The story of “Hot Sex” also has some beef trailing it. New jack swing crew Wreckx-n-Effect took offense to Phife’s “Me sweat another?
- “Scenario (Remix)” While the original Low End Theory closer remains the essential, the remix cribs a Kool & the Gang sample that gives that gives the new posse cut a high-stakes air.
- “Oh My God” Busta Rhymes wasn’t part of A Tribe Called Quest’s original incarnation, but make no mistake: he was an essential spice to their recipe.
