A Tribe Called Quest, straight out of New York City will always be remembered in the hearts of hip hop fans.  They were a highly influential group that was popular in the late 80’s, early 90’s.  Even if you have not heard of this group, you have at least heard of Q-tip.  The four member group consists of Q-tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammed, and Jarobi White.  Jarobi White was featured on their first album but left soon after.  However, we have heard him in their later tours dates in 2006.  The group split after a while and did the solo gig.  Q-tip had two large singles “Breathe & Stop” along with “The Vivrant Thing.”  This group was extremely influential on the hip hop game and will be remembered with the greats like Run-DMC.  Their music attracted all kinds of hip hops artists and will be forever known as a popular throwback!
