A Tribe Called Quest – Jazz (We’ve Got)

5 03 2013

On this beautifully sunny day in London town, what better way to relax than by sipping on an ice cold beer, having a few tokes of some high grade, Amsterdam-imported devil’s lettuce and listening to the jazz inspired flow of the pioneers of alternative hip-hop. Released on their second album ‘The Low End Theory’ in 1991, this song features samples from ‘Green Dolphin Street’ by the Lucky Thompson Quartet.

Q-Tip, Phife Dawg and Ali Shaheed formed A Tribe Called Quest in 1985 and have an upcoming tour called ‘Beats, Rhymes and Life – The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest’. No dates have been confirmed as yet but I shall let y’all know when they’re in London.
