A Tribe Called Quest

Image Hosted by
Without question the most intelligent, artistic rap group during the 1990s, A Tribe Called Quest jump-started and perfected the hip-hop alternative to hardcore and gangsta rap. In essence, they abandoned the macho posturing rap music had been constructed upon, and focused instead on abstract philosophy and message tracks. The "sucka MC" theme had never been completely ignored in hip-hop, but Tribe confronted numerous black issues -- date rape, use of the word nigger, the trials and tribulations of the rap industry -- all of which overpowered the occasional game of the dozens. Just as powerful musically, Quest built upon De La Soul's jazz-rap revolution, basing tracks around laid-back samples instead of the played-out James Brown-fests which many rappers had made a cottage industry by the late '80s. Comprised of Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Phife, A Tribe Called Quest debuted in 1989 and released their debut album one year later.

Hard to belive these classic tracks are almost 17 years old. 1990 was when hip hop was so pure & new. It was also the first year i first really got into hip hop. Cube was beefin with NWA....PE was beefin with the Govenment. Brand Nubian & PRT were teachin us about the 5% nation. Damn I miss those days! I guess thats why they call them hip hops golden years. These are just a few of my favorite tracks from 1990....enjoy!

Some Shit Ive Been Bumpin ....Part 2

What up peoples!!! Sorry for the delay but ive been on a little vacation the past week and a half. But now the kid is back to bring you some more Classic Hip Hop joints on the daily. These are a few albums ive just recently re-discovered....peep em!!!!!!

The Lox - Money Power Respect The LOX come good (no homo) with their debut album. This was before the D-Block movement they got goin' on now so it may be different to new LOX fans, but it's still heat. Jadakiss, Styles, and Sheek show with this album that they had skills then and still do now. Buckshot - BDI Thug A lot of peoples perception got turned off by this album when it originally dropped in 99. Most people were expecting a Black Moon album backed by all Beatminerz production. This solo album shows a more personal side to Buckshot. The album is solid, it got overly hated on. Lyrically its on point like a dart. Buckshot spits some hot, raw lyrics, the production is very different, but good different. EPMD - Business As Usual On Business As Usual, EPMD appears rougher than before. Erick and Parrish have never sounded better than here. Check out "Hardcore" and "Brothers On My Jock", and the man himself LL Cool J are guest on the sovereign hitsingle, "Rampage". DJ Scratch have an insane hook on this song, where his scratching sound genius. It sounds very energetic, and it's hard to explain, but the whole record basically has an unique energy and mood feel which make you never get tired of it. Memphis Bleek - Coming Of Age Memphis Bleek has a lot to offer but he doesn't show it when he limits his lyrics to only a few things, Women, Money, and all the other flashy stuff people crave. Now he does open his mind up on some tracks letting you know his potential. Besides that this album has some great production and that's where Bleek unleashes the real Bleek. Tracks like Stay alive in NYC, You a thug, and Regular cat. After hearing this album you start to realize in his more recent albums Bleek relies on his production to much but not on this he was hungrier and more aggressive than he is now.
