#BOOMBAPCHAT: TOP 5 A TRIBE CALLED QUEST SONGS

Undeniably the most progressive, clever, artistic and revolutionary hip hop groups of the ’90s, if not of all time, A Tribe Called Quest’s importance in music history cannot be stressed enough. Comprised of Q-Tip (Jonathan Davis), Phife (Malik Taylor), and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, this trio combined jazzy samples, hard-hitting drum and bass lines, and tongue-in-cheek humour, with conscious social messages ranging from philosophy, to the struggles of the black man. This week, with the passing of Phife still hanging heavy in our hearts, I thought it would be prudent to flick back through ATCQ’s catalogue, and give my 5 favourite songs from their prestigious career.

REST IN POWER MALIK TAYLOR, THANK YOU FOR YOUR GIFTS OF CREATIVITY AND POWERFUL WORDS, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.
