The Anthology > Wiki


In their decade of existence, A Tribe Called Quest weren't rap's biggest hit makers, but their signature numbers indeed fill this CD with style, eclecticism, and laid-back but deliberate flow; indeed, the group's stature seems to have grown since its 1998 breakup. The continued importance of their music and ideals for many hip-hop fans will only be enhanced byAnthology's 18 tracks (Q-Tip's recent hit "Vivrant Thing," from theViolatoralbum is a bonus track). Those unfamiliar with Tribe's achievement should have their heads and booties set into motion by the fellas' many moods, from the playful "Check the Rhime" and "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo" to trenchant commentaries such as "Description of a Fool" and "Sucka Nigga." And with its inclusion here, the somewhat rare and all-the-wayout"If the Papes Come" will doubtless reestablish itself as an underground favorite.--Rickey Wright

Tribe called quest are a big piece of Hip hop and me being young blinded by the commercialized stuff today I didn't get to really know them until 2 years ago. Now I have all of their albums and I give credit to this greatest hits album that was put together so well. First the production is crazy and it hooks you right away. Phife and Q-tip provide the sick lyrics that complete this great trio. This is the perfect greatest hits no skips. So bottom line if you want to really get a grip on hip hop …
