EDITORS’ NOTES

One of the most beloved and influential acts in the history of hip-hop, Queens group A Tribe Called Quest changed the game with their witty but intelligent lyricism and jazz-enriched production. Part of the hyper-talented Native Tongues family (with De La Soul, Jungle Brothers, Black Sheep, et al), they released five albums between 1990 and 1998, before going their separate ways to pursue solo careers. Released in '99, The Anthology compiles 19 tracks, basically all of their hit singles, a handful of lesser known fan favorites, and Q-Tip's first and only solo smash "Vivrant Thing." Produced by Ali Shaheed Mohammed as well as the Ummah (Ali, Tip, and a young J Dilla), all of the selections here are great, from the early hits like "Bonita Applebaum" and "Luck of Lucien," through Low End Theory standards "Electric Relaxation" and "Jazz (We've Got)" featuring iconic bassist Ron Carter, to their final big single "Find a Way" off their much-maligned swan song The Love Movement. Whether you're a Tribe fan from way back, or a new jack just discovering their charms, this is an excellent collection, loaded with amazing music.

F.P. ,

Remedy for bad times?

Are you sick of that annoying T.I. voice distortion? Are you tired of listening to todays rappers (Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, etc.) call their music rap when it is really pop? Look no further, you have found the best. Origional, relaxing, energizing, and most importantly, it falls under the scale of music. Buy it, listen, and be cured of your illness!

If you like this, listen to "The Roots" (I know they dont like it when people say they sound like this band but...they dont)
