    On their debut album, People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, A Tribe Called Quest forged a new path in rap by fusing jazz with the pop structure of hip-hop. Art Forum characterized the release by its “jazzy loops, laid-back rapping style, and offbeat rhymes.” Q-Tip, a self-proclaimed abstract poet, told Rap Express contributor Michael A. Gonzales, “My father was the one who turned me on to both jazz and poetry. When everyone was looking on old records for beats to rap over, I just pulled out all these jazz albums…. I can play electric bass by ear, but I wanna play an upright bass and form a jazz quartet and play small clubs…. Like the Duke Ellington records my father used to spin. That’s the stuff I wanna play.” The Tribe’s first album was such a bold innovation that other groups quickly began to pilfer their uncommon jazz-rap style. After the release of Instinctive Travels, Q-Tip contributed his talent for rhyme to Deee-Lite’s platinum-selling single “Groove Is in th...

    The follow-up to People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm was dubbed The Low End Theory. The phrase “low end theory” refers to the visceral, bottom-heavy bass sounds and drum beats at the core of the band’s music. Explained Q-Tip in The Source, “the music is low and when you hear it loud you feel it.” Ali elaborated, remarking, “It’s lower than anything—you can’t hear it on any Walkman speakers, you need a good system to hear it. That’s how deep the frequencies are.” Though still heavily influenced by jazz, The Low End Theory is less avant-garde than the Tribe’s previous effort; as is suggested in the title, the record provides a more street-oriented sound, offering a simpler, more gut-level hip-hop style than did Instinctive Travels. And though the marked “positivity” of the first record found a place on the second, Low End featured several songs that signaled the group’s growing distaste for the music industry. On that topic Q-Tip has been particularly vocal. Aside fro...

    On The Low End Theory, Phife significantly emerged from behind Q-Tip’s shadow, with vocals a bit quicker and higher-pitched than Tip’s, most notably on the cuts “Butter” and “Buggin’ Out.” Asserted The Source, “Those who questioned Phife’s microphone techniques on the first album will swallow those doubts as he practically steals the show on this one. Phife provides a more straight-up b-boy approach to complement Tip’s mellow vibes.” Source contributor Wilder reflected along the same lines, musing, “Maybe Phife’s very noticeably improved lyrical skills… are what make this album a follow-up that does not disappoint.” Also not disappointing was the single “Scenario,” an infectious duet with the group Leaders of the New School, the video of which received quite a bit of exposure on MTV. Another video, for the single “Check the Rhime,” featured erst-while Tribe member Jarobi and drew praise from Wilder, who called it “as creative on screen as Quest is on the mixing board, with crazy abs...

    The Low End Theory was much lauded by critics; The Source gave it their highest rating, establishing the record as “a hip-hop classic.” After the release went gold, Q-Tip and posse performed live on television’s Late Night With David Letterman. And in July of 1992, various media reported that Q-Tip would star with dance diva Janet Jackson in Poetic Justice, filmmaker John Singleton’s follow-up to his controversial and enormously popular Boyz N the Hood. A Tribe Called Quest has won accolades for their use of complex musical structures and the fresh collage of sonic information they have produced. They call themselves A Tribe Called Quest because they are committed to braving new paths, guided purely by their passion for music. Of that dedication Phife said in Art Forum, “It’s not always raking in money and being on MTV. You go through your share of ups and downs and you’ve got to really love the music. That’s why I always tell kids, if it’s in your blood and soul 100 per cent, THEN...

  2. The album title was Phife Dawg’s idea. He didn’t really have a reason, but rather thought it had a nice ring; I’ll be damned if it doesn’t encapsulate A Tribe Called Quest’s rather epic journey through the years, as well as the recent passing of Phife, 45, in March of this year from diabetes complications.

  5. Jan 04, 2020 · The 2010s was the best decade of hip-hop we’ve had so far. The sheer amount of quality projects that came out over the last ten years has been unmatched, as seen by the upcoming list. 25 projects is a lot, but I gave myself 25 slots so that I wouldn’t be annoyed for leaving something off that I wanted to mention.
