Tis the season for beautiful tributes for A Tribe Called Quest. Did you see the earlier post on that dope mural; painted on the same building atop which ATCQ rocked “Check The Rhime” in their video back in the day? Well, now we have a 25th Anniversary Mix by Chris Read titled “Low End Theory.”
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of A Tribe Called Quest’s stellar sophomore LP ‘Low End Theory’ our buddy Chris Read has crafted an exclusive mix of tracks from the album, alternate versions, and original sample material. Listen up and enjoy!

These are Hip-Hop hieroglyphics. Respect to Greg Poole. Been hearing good things about this happening, but this vid puts it in perspective. Back in the day… to now… on the Boulevard of Linden. A Tribe Called Quest. RIP Phife.
25 years after the release of their classic LP “Low End Theory,” watch as a mural honoring A Tribe Called Quest goes up at the site of their iconic 1991 video for “Check The Rhime.”
Man #SpeakLifeToPhife whenever you get a chance. And this Muppetized “Scenario” visual gives us one more chance to do so. Click play and let it happen. Get damn AMPED when you see/hear the Dawg set that joint off. First up to bat forever!
(Keep it hood. Sesame Street stand up!)
This close… thiiiiis close to calling this a ‘mashtape’ – as in a mashup of ATCQ and Outkast tracks. Whatever it’s called, this Nappy DJ Needles mix definitely has something to say. If it were up to us, it’d say #SpeakLifeToPhife
A timely tribute to two of Hip-Hop’s greatest families – Dayglow meets Dungeon. Too bad that actual Tribe and Outkast project Andre 3K spoke of at Phife’s farewell ceremony never came to be. But heads do have this. Enjoy.
The family of Malik “Phife” Taylor have decided to see his wishes through; releasing music that he had been recording for his new album, “Give Thanks.”
Phife loved his fans, and was so excited for them to hear his new music. I feel like he would have wanted it this way.

Deisha, along with Phife’s longtime friend and manager, Dion Liverpool, are leading with this J Dilla produced single, “Nutshell.”

I heart evitaN! There, I said it. Once you run this one, you will say it, too. Dres & Jarobi with another heater, here in visual form, taking us “Higher.” I mean, Dres set this off with “I’m a Black Sheep, like Jesus.” Come onnnn. DOPE lyrics matter, son! And you KNOW it.
The hard hitting single by the Native Tongue brothers Black Sheep Dres and Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest.
Wait… ATCQ… ALL of them? Damn right this goes up on the site! “Can I Kick It” without the question mark; no question. Just Questlove and The Roots backing up the brothers reunited to do one of their seminal hits for Jimmy Fallon’s live audience. Dope!
You can get the 25th Anniversary Edition of “People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm” now via the link below, too.
Whaaaaat???!! J. Cole jumped on the ATCQ classic “Can I Kick It?” Well… yeah, but not like that. Cole remixed the single for 25th Anniversary remaster of “People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm” due out November 20, 2015. Click above and enjoy the J. Cole remix.
The 25th Anniversary version of ATCQ’s “People’s Instinctive Travels & The Paths Of Rhythm” will include the original tracks (remastered) AND a gang of new remixes from the likes of Pharrell Williams (which we posted) and CeeLo Green. Here’s CeeLo’s contribution, a remix to “Footprints.”
A Tribe Called Quest is doing a redux of their debut album “People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm.” Cool. Now, what we have is a Neptune‘d up version of “Bonita Applebum” (remixed by Pharrell Williams). Nice inclusion on the 25th Anniversary Edition of the classic by ATCQ.
Oh yeah, it’s noontime. Ummm… tell ya what… let’s link y’all back to the post with the incredibly sexy Stephanie Santiago as ‘Bonita Applebum’ During A Tribe Called Quest’s New York Performance.
Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest and EvitaN. He’s a real life chef talks with a catering company “Eats Rhymes & Life” (yeah, like flipping the ATCQ documentary). Enjoy this clip of him talking up his “Tribe Taco Tuesdays” and other ideas. Great stuff!

Stephanie Santiago as ‘Bonita Applebum’ During A Tribe Called Quest’s New York Performance (Full Video)
A Tribe Called Quest opened for Kanye West on the Yeezus tour & most definitely the highlight of their set had to be when “Bonita Applebum” showed up in all her glory. Model Stephanie Santiago set the internet on fire with her appearance during Q-Tip, Phife, Jarobi, & Ali Shaheed Muhammad’s set. There were literally hundreds of internet videos & photos of the event, but this video shot by my homie DJ Rasta Root was clearly the best video in it’s full entirely. Lawd have mercy
So the shows A Tribe Called Quest are doing in NYC shows with Kanye West are their “final” performances, eh? We’ll see. Well, if anyone can speak on such and more things ATCQ, Jarobi White can. In a sit down for OK Player, Jarobi speaks on his gig, restaurant biz, music, rumors of his death… You know, typical interview stuff. Hahaa! Good clip though. Watch.
Is Phife in ATL talking noise about the Falcons?? Hahaaa! This 4-IZE jawn“Rush the Court” featuring him and the homie Senor Kaos better be solid.
Check out 4-IZE (from 6 Rings) and Phife Dawg (from A Tribe Called Quest) talking about 4-IZE‘s new project “Chi-TLien” produced entirely by the Dynamite Bruhz. “Rush the Court” features Phife Dawg & Senor Kaos.
