This IS hiphop
on November 1, 2002
First off Id like to say that the guy before is right. There is barely (except the Roots, Common, J5, etc) any mainstream talent like this anymore but Dre is one of the originals and even though he doesnt rythme about truly thoughtful topics, he still has crazy mic skills. There is talent out there but its in a little known place called the underground where real mcs live.
Anyway, this is a review, so ill review:
THIS CD IS ONE OF THE BEST EVER!!
phife, q-tip and ali straight have mic control. But I must warn you that this not a gangsta rap album. This is hiphop. This got soul.
Let me sum it up for you. If you dont know of TCQ or this album then you are not a hiphop fan. Thats okay but if youre starting to get into hiphop, this is a must-have. And I know tons of rap-haters who love Tribe. I dont think there is a person on this earth who doesnt like this cd. The beats are jazzy, and arent you sick of hearing the same beats by the Neptunes, or any of those soldout rappers who are looking for "bling-bling" and rapping about their money and their [girls]?
TCq has no blingbling and dont want any. They were raised and put out music in a time when hiphop meant more than illiterate rappers who make up words so they can rythme...
