i've heard their last effort 'the love movement' was sadly feeble and mediocre. but thats negligible...they firmly have their place in the firmament of hip hop history.

the love movement was dope IMO

ATCQ is dope, but not better than Wu. First of all u can't compare them !!!! Wu has too many members, plus their style are different. I remember reading an interview of Phife & he said that they are coming back.

ATCQ is better than the Wu cause atcq has never come out wiht nething bad

i cant say the same for the wu but wu is still dope


but thats just my opinion

lol !! Q-Tip solo is wack + The love movement is an ok album.


U can't compare 36 Chambers, Ironman, Cuban Linx, Liquid Swords & many more to their albums. I'm a huge ATCQ fan, but they uncomparable to Wu. These are 2 different styles of Hip-hop !!!!

"I'll bust a nut in your eye to show you where I come from" ahhhhh yeaah, Tribe is the shiizzznit, although I've read ever track they did was timeless in this post. How many of yall got a skytel pager? ......................................C, most of its timeless, I can't say all.

Before I knew about Wu-Tang, I didn't think any group could ever be doper then ATCQ. Even after listening to the Wu, I gotta say they are on the same level.

Good tracks for those who don't know them?

-Butter
-Jazz (and the Remix of it)
-Find a Way
-Scenario (Find the Music Video)
-Oh My God
-Stressed Out
-Electric Relaxation

peoples instinctive travels - 5/5
low end theory - 5/5
midnight marauders - 5/5
beats, rhymes and life - 4/5
love movement - 3.5/5

its sad they broke up, they had so many classic songs, tip always says its not happeneing, 3 or 4 years back they made a song with erykah badu
cant remember the title, but that song was supposed to start the reunion

YOu forgot their best track, Bonita Applebum. That is one of the first classic hip hop singles i've ever heard and it really brought me into Hip Hop when i was young.

atcq are dope. for me midnight marauders is their best album but it is close between that and low end theory.

MwazaUmoja
06-28-2006, 09:30 AM
I'm gonna be the only person to think this, but I think Find A Way is a few levels about Bonita Applebum. Both are great songs, I just think Find a Way is better.

i read on hiphopsite awhile back that tribe is doing a small US tour in the fall, and depending on how that goes, they might do another album

i'm def gonna see them

HipHophead101
06-28-2006, 12:46 PM
mos def im gonna see that! i hope its true

q tip is a GOAT in my opinion

not only beacause of atcq but he seemed to be on more than half the classic albums in the early and mid 90s like illmatic, infamous ...

This thread brings up a question. Since the breakup is there any material from either Ali Shaheed or Phife that I should check out??

CharlesJones
06-28-2006, 04:30 PM
Phife did a solo album 4 years ago called Ventilation. You should peep that. I liked it. Pete Rock did some production on there. Ali never did any albums but he did a group album with Raphael Saddiq of Tony Toni Tone and Dawn Robinson of En Vogue. The group was called Lucy Pearl. That song you're talking about Tribe did with Erykah Badu a few years ago is called ICU(Doin It). That song was supposed to be on Violator 3 compilation but it never came out.

kurupt_kw
06-28-2006, 04:48 PM
Does Ventilation have that laid back tribe vibe or did Phife switch it up a bit like Tip did for his solo(s?)??

Ali Shaheed Mohammed DID release an album.

Phife's Ventilation album came out 6 years ago, my bad. His album has that Tribe vibe. Phife kept it hip hop and street on his solo album. He didn't switch up like QTip's bitch ass. Phife was supposed to release another solo album 3 years ago called Songs In The Key Of Phife but it never came out. I remember reading a interview from him and he said he was working on a follow up solo album after Ventilation. I hate these bitch ass record companies that shelve rappers albums. I wanted to hear another solo album from Phife.

i got that "the abgstract"-album where q-tip sings (bootleg though).

wtf, you are right.....8 years since the splitup and barely new material!

yeah man ATCQ is second only to the wu

yo am i the only one who thinks people's instinctive travels> low end theory, midnight marauders

CharlesJones
06-29-2006, 03:52 PM
LOL@you think Tribe's first album is better than The Low End Theory and Midnight Marauders hahahahahahahahahaha. This dude i know told me he used to have a copy of QTip's Kamaal The Abstract album that never got released and he said it sucked badly LOL. He said he threw his copy away LOL. I'm not surprised the album sucked.

ShaDynasty
06-29-2006, 04:59 PM
i wanna hear that kamaal the abstract solo
was supposed to be some ill jazz type shit, and better than 'amplified' (although thats not difficult)
'peoples instinctive travels.....' was a dope classic the production was more varied than their other albums
low end theory and midnight marauders were better though
it would be ill if tribe did another album, and just kept it in house (like tip could produce it and phife and ali could give direction) that would be some dope shit
