A Tribe Called Quest Tickets
A Tribe Called Quest is an influential rap group
most famous in the 1990s. The group is comprised of Q-Tip, Phife Dawg and DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad. A
fourth member, Jarobi White, parted ways with the group after
their first album.
At the time of their inception, A Tribe Called Quest was unique within the hip hop community for eschewing gangsta rap and macho posturing. Their lyrics focused on positive abstract messages and social issues. Musically, the group helped pioneer the jazz rap style along with groups such as Gang Starr and De La Soul. Some of their most popular songs include "Can I Kick It?", "Jazz (We've Got)" and "Check the Rhime".

A Tribe Called Quest formed because Q-Tip and Phife had grown up together in Queens and met Muhammad in high school. The group's name was coined in 1988 by The Jungle Brothers, whose members had attended the same school. Soon after, the group began performing live and recording on a local label. A Tribe Called Quest became a part of the Native Tongues family, a hip hop artist collective famous for the socially-conscious and positive messages it delivered in its music. The Native Tongues family's membership included A Tribe Called Quest collaborators such as The Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah, De La Soul, Leaders of the New School, Monie Love and Black Sheep.
A Tribe Called Quest made their studio debut in 1990 with People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. Though this album was critically acclaimed and lead to a strong fan following, their next album, The Low End Theory (1991), was a massive artistic success, appearing on several best of the year lists. It is considered one of the most important hip hop albums to date. The Low End Theory was followed by another commercial success, Midnight Marauders (1993). Beats, Rhymes and Life (1996) and The Love Movement (1998), the group's last two albums, featured production by The Ummah and were less well-received than their predecessors.
Following The Love Movement, A Tribe Called Quest disbanded. Q-Tip and Phife Dawg went on to pursue solo careers, while Muhammad founded the R&B group Lucy Pearl. Recently, A Tribe Called Quest has reunited and are touring the US.
