    16 nov. 2008, 20h42m par beezer_b

    In honour of Q-Tip finally putting a record out I thought I'd try and write down my top ten A Tribe Called Quest songs. In order. Damn.

    One of my favourite groups ever, who I must have spent as many hours listening to as any other band. Not easy to whittle down to just ten.

    10. Mr. Muhammad
    9. We Can Get Down
    8. Butter
    7. Scenario
    6. Buggin' Out
    5. Can I Kick it (Spirit Mix)
    4. Youthful Expression
    3. Lyrics to Go
    2. If the Papes Come (remix)
    1. Vibes and Stuff

    For the rest I just had to go on which tracks I'm the most hyped to hear when they come on. Looking at the list its a lot of the bassier tracks but I don't tend to think of Tribe having bass like that. At least not compared to EPMD or someone like that. For me, there's only a handful of rap acts that could put up a top ten on this level. …

    so i'll try and compile my ten favourite MC's, for you to debate..

    here goes anyway!

    #1: MF DOOM
    (Also known as, Zev Love X (in KMD), Metal Fingers, Viktor Vaughn, King Geedorah, and associated withDANGERDOOM, Madvillain. As shown by the impressive amount of artist connections to the one man alone, DOOM, or Daniel Dumile, as is his real name, is truly one of the busiest figures in modern underground hip hop. His rhymes are almost always unusual and the beats he lays down are often noted for being retro, as is imaginable by his fixation on superhero comics, and 1950's culture. Releasing 2 landmark albums under the name MF DOOM, Operation: Doomsday, and MM..Food, DOOM has recently risen the ranks in hip-hop circles, he tirelessly works on instrumental hip-hop projects under the name Metal Fingers…
