Will A Tribe Called Quest Make More Music?
A Message From Zulu Nation Featuring Mike G of Jungle Brothers
Top Customer Reviews
A Tribe Called Quest are like the standard of greatness to me. They are my favorite music group. Outside of my friends and family I love them more than anything. When I think of great collaborating vocalists I put Q-Tip and Phife at the top of the pile. That includes John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, Andre 300 and Big Boi and Run and DMC. Their chemistry was so perfect that it just seemed like it was meant to be. I was a great fan of hip-hop. I was a total hip-hop junkie BEFORE they came out. Then Jungle Brothers came along - then De La Soul - then A Tribe Called Quest. I never knew that I could have such a deep appreciation for something until they flipped the script on the music paradigm.
Michael Rapaport did an amazing job. I am awestruck that the first choice for a feature length hip-hop documentary that played in movie theaters was made for A Tribe Called Quest. They sold millions of records but they never sold records like Eminem, Jay-Z, Tupac or Biggie (or quite a few other acts). Not even close. The choice of A Tribe Called Quest was a wise choice. Their influence has now spanned at least two generations of hip-hop. Every Tribe fan that I know is a die hard loyalist like myself.Read more ›
My music in '91 was the Low End and Nevermind
This other $#!+ here you can leave it all behind
No disrespect but this movie pushes my brain's rewind
Tip, Shaheed Muhammad and Phife make up the Quest
If you think you can do better then go and be my guest
But if you try you won't be able to pass this test
This movie gets an "A" while Tribe's attitudes get an "F"
Great minds think alike it isn't always true
They all thought differently and now we're all blue
Were you watching this thinking it was all about you?
Go grab your tissues and go cry the boo hoo
Tribe made their music and now it's all history
Time keeps ticking hickory dickory
But we will all still have our new found memories
Of Buggin' Out with this new here scenery
What's done is done, buh-bye, it's all in the past
But Beats, Rhymes & Life still hits the center mass
And if you don't like it you can all kiss my hash
You go cry your tears while amazon goes and counts its cash
Rappaport's joint is just higlighting the truth
'Bout how Tribe's feelings overtime sharpened their tooth
World Tours, old wars, from Hong Kong to Duluth
That's when it all ended and then went up like: POOF!
That's it I guess there's nothing else to say
No more Scenarios or Bonita Applebum's are coming down our way
But that $#!+ is as fresh as it was yesterday
Go find your old CD's and press on the play
The extras are a wonderful bonus. Explanations of the Native Tongue's demise straight (out the jungle) from mouths of members of Jungle Brothers, De La Soul, Black Sheep, Monie Love, etc. are revealing and entertaining. Comments from pioneers like Kool DJ Red Alert on his involvement and Voilator 'Baby' Chris shed even more insight into the complex world of this genre changing crew.
The less than 24-hour delivery fro Amazon Prime was a shocking benefit, better than on-demand. Everything was of the highest quality & treament, props to Am & the makers of the dvd.
Most of all respect to Tribe for sharing even more of their instinctive travels.
A Tribe Called Quest, represent-represent.
