So apparently Industry Rule #4080 is no longer in effect. Or maybe it no longer applies when you’ve passed the age of 21? Either way, I’m very pleased that Q-Tip got this gig with G.O.O.D. Music, no one could be more deserving of such an opportunity. To be in this business for over 25+ years and have the younger hip-hop generation recognize your talent, that’s a pretty big deal! Kanye did something that most people in his industry would want to do, work closely with one of their idols.
For the kids who don’t know who A Tribe Called Quest are, yet claim to be “heads”, do yourself a favor and go to another site. I’m kidding! They are only one of the most influential and brilliant hip-hop groups of all time.
“Check The Rhime” off one of the greatest albums in hip-hop history, The Low End Theory is definitely one of their most popular tracks. This video represents Queens to the fullest. The visuals of Linden Blvd., rocking a crowd in their neighborhood with huge speakers, baseball jerseys… show just how fun and playful hip-hop used to be, it was all about the music! #CLASSIC
