A Tribe Called Quest - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Tribe Called Quest is an American hip hop group, formed in 1985,[1] and is composed of MC/producer Q-Tip, MC Phife Dawg aka Phife Diggy (Malik Taylor), and DJ/producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad. A fourth member, rapper Jarobi White, left the group after their first album but rejoined in 1991. Along with De La Soul, the group was a central part of the Native Tongues Posse, and enjoyed the most commercial success out of all the groups to emerge from that collective. Many of their songs, such as "Bonita Applebum", "Can I Kick It?", "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo", "Scenario", "Check the Rhime", "Jazz (We've Got)", "Award Tour" and "Electric Relaxation" are regarded as classics by the hip hop community.

They released five albums between 1990 and 1998; the group disbanded in 1998. In 2006, the group reunited and toured the U.S., and planned to release a new album. The group are regarded as iconic pioneers of alternative hip hop music, having helped to pave the way for innovative hip hop artists.[2] John Bush of Allmusic called them "the most intelligent, artistic rap group during the 1990s,"[3] while the editors of About.com ranked them #4 on their list of the "25 Best Rap Groups of All Time."[4] In 2005, A Tribe Called Quest received a Special Achievement Award at the Billboard R&B Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta.[5] In 2007, the group was formally honored at the 4th VH1 Hip Hop Honors.

Q-Tip and Phife Dawg were childhood friends who grew up together in Queens, New York. Initially, Q-Tip performed as a solo artist (MC Love Child), occasionally teaming up with Muhammad as a rapper/DJ duo. While the duo frequently made demos with Phife (as Crush Connection), the sports enthusiast Phife was still courting professional basketball ambitions and remained somewhat reluctant to become a full member of the group. He only later relented after Jarobi also joined, thus making the group a quartet. The group's final name was coined in 1988 by the Jungle Brothers, who attended the same high school as Q-Tip and Muhammad.[3] Q-Tip made two separate appearances on the Jungle Brothers' classic debut album, Straight Out the Jungle; the songs "Black Is Black" and "The Promo", respectively. Afrika Baby Bam of the group introduced Q-Tip to De La Soul when he took him along to a studio session for the recording of the remix for the group's song "Buddy". Produced by Prince Paul, the remix of "Buddy" was to be an all-round Native Tongue production, and the eccentric producer encouraged Q-Tip to contribute to the record.
