1gYsF 538x540 Mick Boogie   Excursions: Rarities And Remixes Of A Tribe Called Quest (Mixtape)

A Tribe Called Quest is one of my favorite groups of all time… In any genre of music. After seeing Michael Rapaport’s amazing documentary on the group, I felt inspired to put together a mix and this is the end result. This is NOT a greatest hits mix. This mix is for the true Tribe fans only… The die-hards who know every lyric and remember every interlude. I thought it would be cool to basically create the “lost” Tribe album… With all the rare songs, demos, limited-edition remixes, and collaborations you may have missed over the years. I hope when you enjoy this as much as I do, and hear some things you have never heard before. Special thank you to UNDRCRWN for the amazing artwork. Long live A Tribe Called Quest! No tracklist. Your just gonna have to download it.

Legendary group Naughty By Nature sit down with Sumit Sharma of The Hip Hop Chronicle UK for this exclusive interview. Treach, Vin Rock and Kay Gee speak on how the group were originally called “New Style”.

Off camera, Sumit was talking about Yoke The Joker with Treach and he told him to listen to the background vocals on the track because you can hear Queen Latifah say “New Style”.

They speak on their memorable studio moments including when Kay Gee wasn’t a fan of the “Uptown Anthem” beat.
