A Tribe Called Quest are kings in their neighborhood of Queens New York and now a larger-than-life tribute will be on a building they made famous.
According to TMZ.com, the street mural, commissioned by fans, will be painted on the side of Nu-Clear Cleaners, the dry cleaner where the group shot its “Check The Rhime” video in 1991. The building sits on Linden Boulevard , the street that’s soon-to-be co-named A Tribe Called Quest Blvd.
Famed artist Vince Ballentine will be the man responsible for painting the mural. Multiple reports say the mock-up will feature the faces of all four members, Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Jarobi and the late Phife Dawg, placed between the Nu-Clear Cleaners’ wall’s five windows.
These are a few Vince Ballentine’s designs around the streets of New York.
The mural’s expected to be green-lit in the next few weeks. Councilman Daneek Miller‘s office tells us all the paperwork was submitted last month, and so far no one’s opposed.
Looks like the project is on point.
