A Tribe Called Quest - The Hop TBT

This week for TBT, I present to you, "The Hop" by a crew out of New York City, A Tribe called quest. This song "The Hop" appeared on Tribes fourth album called Beats, Rhymes and Life. The album was released in 1996 and most say that this album was one of Tribe's darker albums. If you know about Tribe called Quest, the group is known for joyful, positive vibes music and in 1996, Hip-Hop went full blown gangsta on everyone; actually this was round the time M-A-$-E was starting to get big but if you remember, Death Row record label was huge at this time and they were feuding with Bad Boy records; Hip-Hop was not in a state of peace. Big names at the time like Nas, another infamous group out of New York called Wu-Tang was doing really well and most of their music leaned in a gritter direction when compared to tribe. However, in the darkness, the album Beats, Rhymes and Life landed number one on the billboard 200 and top R&B albums; so this week, I present to you, "The Hop." Hope you enjoy and as usual, thank you for stopping by "No Title" the random blog and pretty please, help a blogger out and click on the green links.One love. =)
