Hillel Cool J- Tribute Called Quest

tribecalledquest

Although you can give credit to Run DMC’s “Raising Hell”, my love of hip-hop can strongly be tied to the group known as A Tribe Called Quest. There is no mistaking the voice of Q-Tip and Phife over samples of such jazz giants as Ron Carter or Roy Ayers. Not only was I learning that hip-hop wasn’t all guns and thugs, but I was being introduced to the sounds of jazz. Thus, as a young DJ, I had to make a tribute mix. This really is one of my very first mixtapes (that I actually recorded onto a tape!) I think I did this one around 2000.  Basically, if you don’t know, now you do.
