* MoneyDearBoy: A rare [[TropesAreNotBad positive example.]] As Ali states in the Beats, Rhymes & Life documentary, the main reason Tribe reunited was to help pay Phife's medical bills, since he suffers from diabetes.



* ThePeteBest: Jarobi White. Subverted as he's been with the group since 2006.



* ThrowItIn: In "What?" Q-Tip accidentally says "Kapelka" instead of "Gefilte." They decided to keep it in anyway.

They released five albums in eight years (the first one being in 1990 and the last one in 1998), the first three [=LPs=] were highly acclaimed, but the group disbanded in 1998, because of friction between Phife Dawg and Q-Tip. In 2006, the group reunited to pay for Phife's medical expenses via touring and appearances. There's been talk of a new album, and a documentary about the group was produced, ''Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest'', directed by [[TheWarAtHome Michael]] [[{{Bamboozled}} Rapaport]]. The group is regarded as iconic pioneers of alternative hip hop music, having helped to pave the way for innovative hip-hop artists. Allmusic calls them "the most intelligent, artistic rap group during the 1990s". In 2005, A Tribe Called Quest received a Special Achievement Award at the Billboard R&B Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta. In 2007, the group was formally honored at the 4th VH1 Hip Hop Honors.
