Yo! I remember the very first time I ever heard A Tribe Called Quest. I was in milwaukee at the Mexican Festival, it was the summer before I began the 6th grade, and there was this tent selling mix tapes and airbrushing t-shirts. So I asked one of my cousins which tape I should buy, this guy knew his shit, so when he said X-Clan, I trusted him and threw down my
$10. X-Clan was a DJ crew, so it was a mix of all kinds of rap music, but I'll never forget this one song on that mix tape which was smoother than everything else, it was like butter being spread over warm toast. I eventually found out that that song was "Electric Relaxation", naturally I had to find out who made it, A Tribe Called Quest. I kissed a girl for the very first time at that festival too as we rode this amusement ride right by the lake. ATCQ brings a warm feeling of nostalgia to me. I hope you feel the same when you hear this journey through some ATCQ joints as well as some solo Phife and Q-tip joints. Peace.
