First rap group to use jazz in samples. A towering influence on the current indie hip-hop scene. Oh, and they freakin' rule. There's that.

Okay Liam...don't know how you did it, but you got me to likin' a bit of rap!! I listened to a track called "Luck Of Lucien" by this group...pretty unique!! One thing I think you can gather about me...I'm not totally close-minded!!

Well, ATCQ are very unique!!

Just another rap group that talks over a bunch of stuff they stole from real musicans.How does rap even qualify as music anyway?It's more like poetry for idiots.Do any of these guys even know how to play an instrument.

Man A Tribe Called Quest is classic. Best Alt-rap group of all time, in my opinion. And their influence on not only indie and alternative rap, but rap in general is undeniable. They were Pioneers of Jazz Rap, were founding members of the Native Tongues, changed rap forever in my opinion. Their beats always had a nice, laid-back jazzy feel with live instrumentation (@ A Tribe Called Poop) and their lyrics were consistently true and intelligent. They deserve it, imo.

Electric Relaxation, Bonita Applebum, 8 Million Stories, Buggin Out are to name a few of ATCQ best work. These songs along are testaments to the excellence of sound they created. In addition, they produced a rapping style that was unique, equivalent to watching a Butch and Sundance flick. They played on each others lines, but maintained a character seperate from one another. These dudes were talented. So yes, it would be an honor to see "A Tribe Called Quest" be received into the RRHF. I just hope I live to see the day.

#1 album in the country this week. It's an amazing album too with some big names guesting. I really hope they get a nom next year, as they were massively influential in hip hop.
