LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 4

Beats, Rhymes & Life – crucial aspects of Tribe Called Quest and hip hop in general – and the fourth album by the inimitable Tribe! After a couple or three years of down time following Midnight Marauders, the Tribe returned with this extra stripped down sound, collaborating with Jay Dee and the Ummah. Titles include "Jam", the r&b crossover ready "Stressed Out" feat Faith Evans, "Motivators", the great "Phony Rappers", and "Keep It Moving", "Word Play", "The Pressure", "Word Play" and much more. (Cover has a factory sticker, promo stamp & a partially unglued bottom seam. Vinyl has two pressing flaws that click on side 2, track 4 & side 3, track 3 – otherwise very clean!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sleeping Bag, 1986. Near Mint-
The follow up to the classic first LP!

Cold Chillin, 1990. Near Mint-
His first and best LP from the days when being hardcore and/or sullen was not the first requirement for being an MC. Perfect mid-tempo production by Marly Marl. With Ace's impersonation of Biz Markie on "Me & The Biz", plus "Letter To The Better", "I Got Ta", ... LP, Vinyl record album
