A Tribe Called Quest is a hip-hop group formed in Queens, NYC in 1985 and composed of Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, and DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad. At the time of their inception, ATCQ was unique within the hip-hop community for eschewing gangsta rap and macho posturing. Their lyrics focused on abstract and social issues such as the word "nigger," date rape, and consumerism. Musically, the group helped pioneer the jazz-rap style (along with groups like Gang Starr and De La Soul). ATCQ made their studio debut in 1990 with 'People's Instinctive Travels & the Paths of Rhythm.' Though it was critically acclaimed and lead to a strong following, their next album, 'The Low End Theory' (1991) was a massive artistic success, appearing on several best of the year lists. It's considered one of the most important hip-hop albums to date.
