Quick Overview

Details

ATCQ was positioned equidistant between De La Soul and Jungle Brothers. They were socially relevant, proudly black and whimsical, quirky and confident, a near perfect amalgamation of the other two groups. But don't get it twisted: Tribe hit our eardrums on their own terms, with a sound that was all theirs.

Part documentary, part memoir, Shawn Taylor's disarming book about A Tribe Called Quest's debut album takes you back to 1990, when hip-hop was in a state of flux, cassette mixtapes were all the rage, Desert Storm was kicking off, and and being a young black man equally enamored of Public Enemy, comic books, the Clash, Fishbone and Dr. Who was no easier than it is today.
