Eh, theyre ok. Pioneers, but not "gangsta" enough for my tastes.

top 5 for sure, complete quality fru and fru

i think they peaked on Marauders artistically and obviously commercially because the albums before, though excellent, sounded more like they had a great idea but it was still in the rough phases and they finally mastered it on Marauders

they're whole style was unfuckwitable, i really liked their use of live sounding instruments. i also like how humble they were with the rhymes, not really trying anything excessive of impressive, just simplicity, clearness, and inventive themes.


favorite songs right now by them

1. Sucka Nigga
2. Can I Kick it
3. Lyrics to God
4. We Got The Jazz


feel free to post their first 3 albums for DL on megaupload ppl, is this a party or what?

the whole Marauders is a fuckin masterpiece, my dad had it and when i was a young FOB i used to play frisbee with it, doggystyle and mystikals first album

i would come to realize later in life that i should go to hell and suck on the devils dick.

i never could understand how ppl like Midnight Mauraders over The Low End Theory.

I dunno i think its the greatest non skippable cd (actually cassette) i own . Takes A Nation Of Millions as well

Midnight Mauraders i never liked 2-3 tracks off there.

the first one is just bumpin and onn a whole different level , mad funky The drumkick off Push It Along is so sick ONGH

I luv Tribe and i miss them

Marauders just sounds like more of a solid product like Ironman in comparison to Tical maybe.

Plus Low End is really more for the heads and Marauders is more accessable without being commerical or wack

so if you were stranded for the rest of your life and they said TSA you pick either Low End Theory or Midnight Mauraders ..

now there iz a debatable record.

I luv the track #4 or 5? The Jam

MHV1L74ap5o

but The Uhhmah (i think thatz his name produced this record) now if this wa s debut record ppl would praise it..but all in all for Tribes standards somewhat weak .

i was so excited for and was dissapointed.

my fav track on Midnight is actually the last track ,


God Lives Through
