YMMV / A Tribe Called Quest

  • Growing the Beard: The Low End Theory is generally seen as better than People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm.
  • Sampled Up: "Can I Kick It?" samples the bass line from "Walk On The Wild Side" from Transformer by Lou Reed; depending on where you go on the radio dial, it might be the only place you hear it.
  • Signature Song: "Bonita Applebum"
  • Sophomore Slump: Critics and interviewers would ask Q-Tip if he was scared of a "sophomore jinx". His response? "'Sophomore jinx?' What the fuck is that, I'm going to make The Low End Theory."
