A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory (1991)

On this week's episode, we take our first dive into hip hop, and listen to possibly its most influential album, The Low End Theory. A Tribe Called Quest emerges from the Native Tongues in the early 90s, bringing with them positive-minded, Afrocentric lyrics and eclectic, unique & jazz-influenced beats. We also take a quick peak at the golden age of hip hop, focusing on New York's hip hop community in the mid to late 80s and early 90s, leading up to the rise of A Tribe Called Quest.
