I can’t front. When I first heard A Tribe Called Quest I was not a fan. I thought their song I Left My Wallet In El Segundo was kind of corny and lame. Then I heard their classic album Midnight Marauders which featured Award Tour, Electric Relaxation and Oh My God. I was hooked. The jazz samples the flows and the beats were perfect.
Q-Tip and Phife Dawg play well off of one another. I never got the sense that one was trying to outshine the other but, that they pushed each other to new lyrical heights. It’s hard for me to choose one over the other that’s why I’m putting to on you!
