Today (30th July 2016) marks the 20th Anniversary of A Tribe Called Quest's 4th and penultimate studio album, 'Beats Rhymes & Life'. Produced almost entirely by the Ummah, a production outfit featuring a young J-Dilla, it's rich in samples and displays a bass heavy, more stripped down production sound than previous albums. Also heavily featured is Consequence whose career was largely kickstarted by the release. Released 3 years after the group's seminal 'Midnight Marauders' with recording said to have been affected by internal differences in the group, the LP failed to gain the critical acclaim of previous offerings at the time of release, critics suggesting it lacked the chemistry evident on earlier albums. 20 years on however it remains a great listen.

In keeping with tradition we've teamed up with www.mixcloud.com/waxpoetics to present this exclusive mixtape of album cuts, alt versions and of course original sample material mixed by www.mixcloud.com/chrisreadsubstance
