ATCQ reuniting once again would’ve been a huge highlight by itself, but then The Kid decided to make his SXSW debut by doing a reported six encores. Check it out up top and down bottom, courtesy of Mikey Fresh.
Or, what little hopes we had left. Speaking to Montreality, Ali touches on a variety of topics (his solo album, growing up, J Dilla, Chris Lighty, the usual), before going into the possibilities of another A Tribe Called Quest project (read: none). One can only dream.
Gummy Soul and Amerigo Gazaway combine the best of the two legendary factions for this mash-up project. Why hasn’t this been done sooner is anyone’s guess, but better later than never right? Tracklist and link down bottom.
Gummy Soul is combining the best of ATCQ and The Pharcyde – essentially mixing 90s boho rap’s chocolate and peanut butter together – for this upcoming mashup compilation…
Utilizing the original Jazz, Soul and Funk recordings sampled throughout A Tribe Called Quest’s extensive catalogue, Gazaway recreates classic productions – pairing his reinterpreted instrumentals with select vocals from West Coast “golden era” favorites, The Pharcyde.
If it sounds like this, then it may be a very good project.
This is quite possibly the first time all of them have done this song since that appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show damn near two decades ago. Check out some clearer footage of the performance of what’s considered one of the greatest posse cuts in hip hop featuring all its contributors.
Last night, Busta Rhymes headlined the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival and catches the audience by surprise as he brought out M.O.P., Buckshot, Smif-N-Wessun, Slick Rick, Reek Da Villian and A Tribe Called Quest. But the highlight came when Leaders Of The New School reunited after 20 years for an epic performance of “Scenario”.
The Revive Da Live Big Band paid tribute to legendary hip-hop act A Tribe Called Quest at Harlem Stage in New York recently. Guests such as Buckshot, Sadat X, Dres of Black Sheep, and several members of Leaders of the New School performed some of Tribe’s most memorable hits.
In this bonus set of video left off the ATCQ docu-film (it will probably end up on the DVD/Blu-Ray version when that decides to come out), Q-Tip and Nas perform “Breathe & Stop” before Tip brings out Phife and Jarobi to run through a couple of their classics. Props to the Rap-Up.
