About A Tribe Called Quest

A Tribe Called Quest is an American hip hop group, formed in 1985, and is composed of MC/producer Q-Tip, MC Phife Dawg aka Phife Diggy (Malik Taylor), and DJ/producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad. A fourth member, rapper Jarobi White, left the group after their first album but rejoined in 1991. Along with De La Soul, the group was a central part of the Native Tongues Posse, and enjoyed the most commercial success out of all the groups to emerge from that collective. Many of their songs, such as 'Bonita Applebum', 'Can I Kick It?', 'I Left My Wallet in El Segundo', 'Scenario', 'Check the Rhime', 'Jazz (We've Got)', 'Award Tour' and 'Electric Relaxation' are regarded as classics by the hip hop community. They released five albums between 1990 and 1998; the group disbanded in 1998. In 2006, the group reunited and toured the U.S., and planned to release a new album.
