A Tribe Called Quest – The Low End Theory
Before they had status and before they had pagers, or smart phones, Andy Derer and Tyler Kahl were simply fans of hip hop music. With Spin Class Podcast they get to take that fandom and use it to create a conversation, not only about a classic hip hop album, but about the politics, culture and lifestyle of the genre. This week they tackle A Tribe Called Quest’s 1991 landmark opus The Low End Theory. Did the Tribe create the first successful fusion of hip hop and jazz? Has the lighthearted lyrical back and forth of rappers Q-Tip and Phife Dawg ever been matched in the 24 years since the album’s release? Were A Tribe Called Quest always destined to be relegated to be listened to by hip hop connoisseurs and not the mass public? All these questions and more answered on this episode of Spin Class.
