Throwback Thursday: A Tribe Called Quest

We had some great ideas for this week's throwback. Like always, we ended up going with something more timely. Since they are playing in the area twice this week, we decided to go with Tribe. If you have any ideas for future throwbacks, send us an e-mail.

A Tribe Called Quest is a hip hop outfit that formed in Brooklyn, NY in the late 1980's. Of course there was no such thing as hip hop outfits back then, but that is for another story. This is usually where we fill you in on the details of the group and discuss their rise, fall and reincarnation. For Tribe, we want to discuss what they mean to us.

Tribe is one of those groups that will forever be tied to our teenage years. Different songs of theirs mean different things to us. Some remind us of girls or particular events or some of our friends. Collectively, they all remind us of good times. As we were going through which tracks to post, the memories flew back in to our brains. We decided to keep the obvious track off and focus on the ones that meant more. Hopefully, you will enjoy this as much as we enjoyed putting in together. They are definitely one of the best hip hop groups ever!
