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.
