A Tribe Called Quest - Midnight Marauders

We have not won any awards, but maybe one day we can do an award tour! Today we keep it rollin' and wrap up our first series on A Tribe Called Quest by discussing their third album, 1993’s “Midnight Marauders.” Is it a better album than “The Low End Theory"? Which song would we cover from this album? Why is Blake wearing a giant Dr. Seuss hat!? Listen as we answer these questions and discuss all 8 million of Phife’s stories.

A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory

Here we go yo! Charge up your batteries and strap on your New Balances because we are continuing our Quest with the Tribe! Today, we look at their legendary second album, 1991’s “The Low End Theory.” Fair warning: there is some heavy material covered in this episode including sexual assault and homophobia, but we also tackle some lighter subjects--like whether or not people eat cacciatore with a twist of lime, and how popular the Arsenio Hall show was. Find out what bugged Blake about “Buggin Out”, and Logan’s opinion on the great Q-Tip vs. MC Hammer feud of the early 90s. You on point?

A Tribe Called Quest - People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm

Can we kick it? It's debatable. In this episode More of That dives into the beginning of our look at the first three A Tribe Called Quest albums. Join us as we begin our travels by discussing what it means to Push it Along, get a geography lesson on Queens, find out what a pubic enemy is, and learn the description of a fool. Along the way we also investigate what Q-Tip meant by “kissing you where others won't” and whether or not any of these songs would make for a good cover by More of That. Lastly, Where is Phife? --- Sources: The Rap Year Book by Shea Serrano (2015) https://www.allmusic.com/artist/a-tribe-called-quest-mn0000478982 Liner Notes for 25th anniversary release by Harry Allen (2015) Check the Technique by Brian Coleman (2007) 33 ⅓ People’s Instinctive Travels… by Shawn Taylor (2018) Beats, Rhymes, and Life: Travels with A Tribe Called Quest Documentary by Michael Rapaport (2011) Genius.com Waaghalsrecords Youtube channel MTV News --- Our opening song is "Never Say Never Again" by More of That.

Pregame: Winter Albums!

As we upload this, much of the USA is in a wintry hell--we're currently snowed in at the More Of Thatcave, dreading rolling blackouts. When we recorded this a few days back, people weren't yet fearing for their lives due to power outages, so we were able to be a bit more cheery about it all. Here's hoping this episode can bring you and yours a few degrees of coziness and (musical) warmth. Today the gang runs down our Top 5 Winter Albums! What makes a winter album? Inquire within! Our opening song is "Never Say Never Again" by More of That. You can listen to us on all major streaming platforms and on [Bandcamp.](http://moreofthat.bandcamp.com) Closing music is "Idioteque" by Radiohead (for obvious reasons).
