Thread: Best A Tribe Called Quest Album?

  1. #1

    Default Best A Tribe Called Quest Album?

    The 2nd best rap group in history has some classics under their belt along with the Wu Tang. Which one is their best? I'm voting Midnight Marauders. To me, this album is like The Low End Theory but with everything just a LITTLE bit better. Both those albums are classics.

    I have a seriously hard time choosing between LET and MM, kind of depends on the mood, but I usually go with Low End.
    In the world I see, you're stalking elk through the damp canyon forest around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty carpool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

    Honestly, all their albums are classic.....

    albums like BEATS RHYMES AN LIFE and the LOVE MOVEMENT considered their lesser albums have aged incredibly well, both have classic JAY DEE production.....

    all there albums are 5/5

    "Midnight Marauders" imo is better then "Low End Theory"

    but they are close.

    I dont think they got 4 classics on there belt. To me, that's like saying Wu Tang's The W is classic. Those albums are good but not classic.

    I'll go with Low End Theory, although I like the production on MM a little better. 2 classics easy
