Show Notes

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?
