Can I Kick It?

by A Tribe Called Quest

Albums

People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm (1990)

A Tribe Called Quest's debut album was not a huge hit, but it is considered essential, even classic, by many hip-hop fans.

The Low End Theory (1991)

Tribe's sophomore album did not disappoint—in fact, on most counts it surpassed expectations, becoming an immediate classic through its jazzy samples and loveably low-key beats.

Midnight Marauders (1993)

The wildest thing is that there is still a debate about which album is better: The Low End Theory or Midnight Marauders? In other words, ATCQ just kept one-upping themselves.
