The 11 Best Songs By A Tribe Called Quest

I can't believe it happened. We've been waiting 8 years. 8 years for a new dawn. We've been given promises for something new every 4 years...but for some reason...they've never seen the light of day. Of course I'm talking about Q-tip's solo work. First Kamaal The Abstract (maybe one of the most innovative hip-hop albums of all time) gets shelved for no apparent reason. A few years later, his follow-up to his shelved album, Open, also is shelved.
On November 4th...all that changed. Q-tip returns to mainstream music with one of the best hip-hop albums of the year...if not the decade. And easily his best material since Midnight Mauraders. Why does it take so long for America to catch up with such progressive thinkers?

Here are The 11 Best Songs By A Tribe Called Quest:

1. Award Tour (Midnight Mauraders)
2. Can I Kick It? (People's Instinctive Travels)
3. Scenario (The Low End Theory)
4. Description of A Fool (People's Instinctive Travels)
5. Stressed Out (Beats Rhymes & Life)
6. Electric Relaxation (Midnight Mauraders)
8. Steve Biko (Midnight Mauraders)
9. Bugging Out (The Low End Theory)
10. Like It Like That (The Love Movement)
11. I Left My Wallet In El Segundo (People's Instinctive Travels)
Buy Q-Tip's new album...The Renaissance. For less than $10! It's great!!
