I’ve always wanted to do a Sample Sessions for A Tribe Called Quest. Well I’ve finally gone ahead and put a little something together that any fan of ATCQ will appreciate and thoroughly enjoy. Any fan of Q-Tip, Phife, and Ali Shaheed Muhammed, will recognize the various bass-lines, drums, guitar licks, and piano samples used on some of their more popular hits, as well as some samples that are a little more obscure.
I purposely did not write which songs used the samples below, that’s an exercise that’ll be more fun for you, So have fun reminiscing about those back pack days of Hip Hop, the glory days….I hope I’ve opened a few ears to something new.
Peace & Love,
