"A Tribe Called Quest, album #6 Exists"

title edited for spelling by mistamonotone...my bad, bro!

Felt like this should be posted here too. Atruhead posted it in the lesson, i just copied his post and pasted it here.


http://ambrosiaforheads.com/2016/08/a-tribe-called-quest-new-album/

Almost 16 years ago, A Tribe Called Quest released its fifth album, The Love Movement. A Top 3 debut, the album arrived to the public following word from the group that it would be their last. In addition to frustrations with the act’s lifelong label, Jive Records, Q-Tip publicly spoke about a growing creative rift between him and Phife Dawg—which was later chronicled in documentary Beats, Rhymes, and Life. That September, 1998 LP would earn a gold plaque, though never to be followed up.

In the time that has passed, Jive Records was absorbed by Epic Records, each A.T.C.Q. member released solo and side albums. Founding member Jarobi also would reunite with his band-mates on a number of tours and public appearances. Nothing more significant would transpire, however, than the March 22 death of Phife Dawg.

Unknown to the public, before Phife’s death from kidney failure, he, Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi had recorded a sixth album as A Tribe Called Quest.

Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid confirmed the album’s existence in a conversation with the Rap Radar Podcast. At the 14:00 mark, when asked about the status of OutKast, Reid shifted the discussion to another Hip-Hop group thought to be permanently on hiatus. “You know what I’m excited about though? A Tribe Called Quest. has A Tribe Called Quest album coming.” Asked if the release is a compilation of unused material, L.A. clarified, “It’s an album that recorded before Phife passed away. I’m really happy about it, man. It’s really something special. It’s one of the things I’m most excited about out of everything we’re working on.”

While Reid was not at Jive during the 1990s, Epic now is responsible for that label’s artists. The high-profile executive touched upon his close bond with Q-Tip. When Reid was CEO at Arista Records in 2000, Q-Tip was a label star, thanks to his 1999 gold-certified solo debut, Amplified.

“ a long relationship. Q-Tip’s a real friend, man. We didn’t hang out, take pictures, and act Hollywood, but he’s a friend. He’s made some incredible music and I love it.” As far as Tribe’s yet-to-be-titled next album, L.A. Reid confirmed complete participation. “Phife is there —the whole group: Jarobi, the entire group, everybody. It’s great too.” Reid promised that this album would not become another tease without delivery. “It’s coming very soon, it’ll be first album in 18 years.”

If the album is suspect, somebody would've said something by now
Sep 01st 2016

      There has literally been ZERO follow-up info on the announcement

So basically the Last Zulu with some Phife

Nov 01st 2016

One important thing Ali said was that Tip asked all them
Nov 01st 2016
86
I'd be surprised if some Last Zulu tracks weren't repurposed for this..
Nov 01st 2016
103
Tip's letter does say they were all involved, no?
Nov 01st 2016
85
Yup. But it seems Ali wasn't able to break away from Luke Cage
Nov 01st 2016
87
      Ali could have easily collaborated without being in NY with Q-Tip...
Nov 01st 2016
88
           True, but if you listen to the interview he stressed how
Nov 01st 2016
89
Q-Tip always was the main producer for the group...
Nov 01st 2016
101
yeah but did they ever finish 'Georgie Porgie'?

lol

Definitely wanna hear it!

Bet that shit is BONKERS.

Wonder if they used some old never heard Dilla tracks too.

That would just put it over the top.

My favorite group EVER besides De la.

I hope that shit is released.

This the same shit Reid pulled with Fiona back in 2012. I'm just waiting to hear from the surviving members before I get too excited.

2. "Obviously this is great news, if it actually happens"
In response to Reply # 0


          

LA Reid sounded pretty confident and did say "their first album in 18 years" and it's "coming very soon". The Love Movement was released in 1998. 98 + 18 years = 2016.
Could be happening.

Statik Selektah indicated he knew of the project and has heard stuff from it.

I'm curious if this will be a lot of te stuff Tip was gonna use for The Last Zulu re-worked or maybe even left as is, and placed under the Tribe banner? Obviously Reid said all members are on it, but if we remember, Tip said a few years ago he wanted to get te Tribe dudes on his solo album. I'm thinking it just transformed into a quasi-Tribe project and maybe it was excelerated after Phife's passing.

I am a big Tribe fan. They are my favorite rap act and one of my favorite groups across genres.

But unless it has the blessings of the remaining members and the album was done pretty much before his death, I don't want to hear any new posthumous work from them.

No Biggie Duets.

No countless 2Pac albums.

I would buy a collection of remixes and unreleased songs, but Tribe will always be the collection of the original members during the time they physically recorded together. Anything else is wack.

Post me some recent content where the members said something about recording new music. Phife did interviews before he died. I know he was working on an EP. Don't recall him mentioning Tribe back in the studio.

... it seemed that the album wasn't completed before Phife died.

It doesn't make sense that the group would record an album and not release it, unless it wasn't finished or it wasn't very good.

Either way, I'd rather stick with the older stuff and hold on to the nostalgia than listen to songs which are spliced together or aren't up to their standard of quality.

with everyone in the studio. nothing about it not being finished. it's highly likely that it would have come out, but with Phife getting ill and then passing, it has been postponed.

In response to Reply # 11


  

          

Like you said, Phife's passing likely caused some type of delay with the marketing and release of the album. But the the words 'working on', which Reid said, made me think that either the album wasn't fine tuned or that the marketing and other parts to get the album ready to be released are incomplete and still being reviewed.

If the album wasn't finished or Tip and Shaheed weren't prepared to release the recordings I feel odd listening in to something that weren't intended to be listened to by the public. I almost get that feeling where I'm rubbernecking at a bad accident. That I'm seeing something that is just to be experienced by close family and friends.

to pursue this story a bit further and get some follow-up comments? I thought for sure after the podcast dropped and the story got out that there would be more information being dug up. But the weekend passes and it's late Monday and nothing but the regurgitated story from Friday. Damn, can someone get one the phone to Tip, Ali, Jarobi, LA Reid or someone else in the know and get some more info?

Although he doesn't mention any new Tribe stuff, he references November's Fallon performance as something special that brought the group back together as a crew. There have been mentions that January was an original release time for Tribe stuff, so I'm even more curious now what the time between Nov 14th and January entailed with regards to the Tribe.

Good podcast too, Jarobi seems like a cool dude.

40. "L.A. Reid initially announcing it and not the members = suspect"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I know the album is real....but is it an album the group is truly proud of?

I think if this was a project to be proud of, one of the Tribe members (Q-tip/Ali) would've broke the news.

By L.A. Reid saying this, it's just a corporate capitalist trying to hype up and get as much out of a golden era group. With the loss of Phife, sales will be up just for nostalgic reasons. There is money there so they know they can get something substantial out of one last project.

Hopefully I am wrong and it is classic. Well, I know for sure there should be a few dope cuts.

Regardless, the album is getting my money.

41. "Phife from last year (link)"
In response to Reply # 40


  

          

This interview took place around the 25th anniversary release of their debut album. It's about 5 months tops between when the interview was done and his passing. How much could he have done in that time because it doesn't sound like they were working on music prior to this interview.
--------------

Jason Newman: Two years ago, Q-Tip said that Tribe's opening slot for Kanye West would be the group's last shows. Did you agree with that decision?

Phife Dawg: I don't agree with it, but it is what it is. We haven't performed together since then.

Jason Newman: Would you be open to more performances with the group?

Phife Dawg: Absolutely. I think it is ludicrous that we are not performing together.

Jason Newman: In 2015, where is the group at mentally?

Phife Dawg: Tribe is no longer a group, first off. So once Q-Tip made the announcement that those were the last two shows, that was pretty much it, for real.

Jason Newman: What do you think is the main impediment Tribe Called Quest isn't a group anymore?

Phife Dawg: (Long pause) I can't really talk about it, to be honest. Because when I talk, my mouth gets me in trouble. I'm the type of dude that tries to keep it 100 and I always get in trouble for it. But I will say: it's dumb, and I don't agree with it and we're doing the fans a great injustice by not getting together and rocking, and that's all I can really speak on as far as that goes.

Jason Newman: In a more general sense, if other members were open to going into the studio and recording a new album, would you consider that?

Phife Dawg: I don't know. I don't know because if we can't get together and do shows, it's going to be even more difficult going into the studio and recording an album. Think about it: The shows that we do are 60 minutes of your day for whatever amount of money. It's just 60 minutes of your day and then you go on with your life, so forth and so on. I don't see nothing wrong with doing 15 shows a year for a good amount of money. Sixty minutes of your day and you keep it moving. We all have families.
But at the same time, on the flip side of that, I believe in consistency. If we're not a group, we're not a group. If we are, we are. Let's get this money. If we're not, then let's not even tease the fans. None of that craziness.

Well um, I'll still go with the consensus (...15/Statik/etc.) that it was done in time before the passing. If that's what there are saying then I'll go with it.

Apart of me though.......ahh, fuck it.....still copping regardless.

In response to Reply # 42


  

          

In the end, I'm likely going to buy the album, mostly because of the testimonials by ?uest and some other folks.

But it's interesting that he didn't bring up the album in ANY way. That last response was really telling in that Phife felt that the group didn't have the motivation to spend an extended amount of time recording an album.

Given the history of the group, Phife could have meant that the group had other commitments and didn't have time to spend recording or they didn't want to record with one another because of the dysfunction of the band.

Either way, unless the group had a standing policy of simply avoiding talking about the album, it's seeming more and more that the album Reid is talking about is an album that was rushed or maybe pieced together over time.

The chances of the album living up to the anticipation are as high as the level of commitment of Tip, Shaheed, and Jarobi to release something that they know the fans of the group are going to revere as much as the earlier four (or three albums).

It wouldn't keep in the spirit of Tip's obsessive nature and great talent to release something that was subpar. And I'm sure that whatever issues Tip and Phife had, that they viewed each other as brothers, estranged brothers, but still as brothers. Tip may be callous, but I don't think he would pull the other two into some ploy to bring Phife down at the expense of the group's legacy.

In response to Reply # 46


          

histories. Tip ain't getting pushed around to release Tribe shit. Tip, the one who least wanted to do Tribe related stuff after the breakup(s) is highly unlikely to be someone trying to release an album with the Tribe name that doesn't have his and the other member's approval. These guys aren't gonna get pushed around to record stuff or put the Tribe name on anything they don't want to. It's obvious. They could easily launch a social media campaign and shame the shit out of Epic and Reid if they didn't want this to happen.

If a new album comes out with that ATCQ name, there is seemingly no way the members aren't on board. These guys aren't 19 years old signed to a record contract and being pressured into things. They are seasoned veterans of the world and the music game.

Damn, we really need more info from this in the know so these things can be cleared up. Can someone send a tweet to Jarobi or whoever and get some feedback? Lol.

and Fallon gig really brought them back together in a deep way. With all the music that we all know Q-Tip probably has from the years and years since his last solo album, it's not that crazy to think that they could add-on to what he had already built and create a bunch of music.

Tip had mentioned that the Last Zulu had a Tribe vibe but with a darker edge. Breakbeats and old school type stuff. If he was working on some off the wall singing stuff or whatever, I could see the timeline not making much sense. But if he was already on his OG hip hop shit, it's not a stretch to think Phife adds his verses to say 5-7 tracks and Jarobi kicks a rhyme or 2 on some stuff. Judging by Nutshell, Phife was on his game towards the end and could bring energy to a track.

I am kinda going nuts waiting for more info on this.

You Tribe heads really want tacked on verses and sh!t?

Look, I get Tribe is the holy grail around here and I hope it all works out for everyone.


But how is Phife adding on a few verses to a Tip Solo count as a Tribe album?

I certainly hope that's not what this is.

If there is a Tribe album, I hope for everyone's sake they actually recorded an album together. Even a short one.


Also, as someone who prefers solo Tip by far (sorry, not trying to sh!t on anything but also just stating my personal wants...RIP Phife and mad respect to his fam and fans...I just prefer solo Tip) I hope to hear the Last Zulu as intended- as a solo album.

And frankly, if it is "oh lets change this Tip solo into a Tribe album" type thang then I call foul...seems opportunistic. If not about the untimely passing of Phife, at least trying to capitalize on that flick or whatever.

Nah.

I hope they recorded an actual album for ya'll.

And I hope the Last Zulu still coming.

48. "Bro it's just a guess on my part based on the timeline"
In response to Reply # 47


          

and an assumption that a whole new album would be difficult to create from scratch from mid November 2015 until whenever they stopped working on it for it to be coming "very soon".

And re-working some of the material Tip had slated for The Last Zulu doesn't necessarily mean verses would be tacked on. If it's already a Tribe vibe as Tip had previously described it, what's to say Phife couldn't lock in on that and add on to a bunch of stuff to make it more "Tribe" than solo Tip?

Look, I get its a new possibility and info is scarce, but I'm just trying to connect some dots to give myself hope. And to be honest, I'm not at all bothered if Phife is only on say half the tracks and the rest is Tip alone or adding some Jarobi in. The last 2 Tribe albums were made by all of them but Phife and Tip couldn't stand each other. If you offer me a new Tribe album now with the blessings of all members that came from a positive atmosphere between them after all these years, I'm taking that album and running away happy as a pig in shit. New Tip verses and beats? New Phife verses? Possibly new Ali beats? A few Jarobi rhymes? Dopeness.

Again, my assumption about how the album could have been kickstarted by using some of Tip's solo stuff that hasn't been completed/released or other stuff he has worked on, could be way off. Just made sense to me.

I wanna state that my intention isn't to be argumentative, but I'm approaching this from a much more "glass half full" angle than most of you seem to be using.

Plus, Bottomline, if it's dope shit that gives me that feeling even if it's only in spots.....after all these years and thinking they'd never do anything together again...I'm just gonna sit back and soak it all in as a fan.

In response to Reply # 50


          

for you? Help me understand that. Unless the actual rhyme for rhyme ratio of the original albums is met and maintained, it ain't Tribe? Did Consequence make the them not Tribe anymore? (Maybe it did for some, but I don't hear many people disregarding BR&L completely because he was on it).
Jarobi had rhymes for the early shit that got scrapped because he decided to do the culinary thing. But he has shown on Evitan he can rhyme alright and he is about as Tribe as it comes, especially as he's been described as the "Heart and Soul" of ATCQ by Q-Tip himself.

And I am grasping at whatever *sensible* info or inferences I can. I really want this to happen, it's a big deal.

It kinda did fuck up the Tribe vibe because we didn't know who this lil nigga was. Plus he wasn't dope back then. I wouldn't mind Jarobi spitting some bars though because I know how important he was to the group.

I'd say it's clear that new music has been made. It's not clear who has actually heard it. I'd say only Statik's comments indicate he's actually heard something. The rest could just be people who knows there is something coming soon, but maybe haven't heard it.

Also, with the respect Tribe garners, I'm not sure anyone is gonna say its wack even if it is. At least in terms of fellow artists. Plus, Tip ain't making wack music anyway, we all know that.

Keep in mind Saturday the 24th marks the 25th anniversary of LowEnd Theory's release. Could an announcement be coming this weekend? Would be a helluva way to mark the anniversary of their most beloved album.

According to Tip, they all came together, along with Busta Rhymes, and recorded the album. Tip hints that November 11th might be the release date. But, yes, it is definitely real now!

I saw his post, read it a few times to see if I was just reading a joke but he seems honest about it, but the release date is a whole other thing unless he's releasing it digital, I just don't see Jive throwing this out so soon of course times have changed and dropping a new release isn't a big deal anymore.

I'm just tired of the whole, artist tells people when they think the album is dropping but the label has a release date they are going to release someone's album and then half the time albums come out digitally but not physically but people see people talking about the album but go to the store to find out it's just an itunes release only and then get upset.

If the album drops physically or digital I'll be cool with it I'm just curious as to how this is droppin' so soon without much press or heads up other than thru social media; especially when in April before Phife Dawg died, he was promoting his 2nd solo album and with a new song/video "Nutshell" and one or two interviews and nothing about recording or working on a new ATCQ album.

75. "I wonder who the "special guest" is"
In response to Reply # 72


          


Swiped from Billboard:

"Tribe will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live following the album's release, with rumors of a special guest joining the group for a special performance"

I doubt it's Busta as he's already confirmed to be on the album. Any guesses? Mine would be:

1. Kendrick
2. Kanye
3. J. Cole

80. "Rolling Stone Now! Podcast with Ali and Adrian Younge"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Posted this in GD, but figured I'd do so over here too.

Gonna make skeptics worry a bit more maybe. Ali doesn't seem to have had much input on the album because of Luke Cage. Says his main contribution was to encourage Phife to continue with the project in the face of traveling back and forth between the coasts and missing family. Phife seemingly wanted to do something else at times in the process. But says he felt Tip and Phife's friendship was important enough to make it worthwhile, especially now that he is gone.

Younge was asked if Ali had played the album for him, but Younge stated they heard music at Tip's in like January/February. Really points to Ali being on the periphery of the process. No mention of Jarobi or really any specifics of the music. Younge says it's good, no elaboration.

So it's interesting to note that this seems like a very much Tip driven project with him and Phife working together quite a bit. That's a good thing. Seems like the Fallon thing really put the Tribe battery into Tip's back. I'm sure more intriguing tidbits will trickle out.

Would put up a link, but the website hasn't been updated yet. Check iTunes.

Edit: Tribe talk starts at 2:30-4:30, and again at 41:20 to the end. Says Tip and Phife got to spend a lot of time together and there is "quite bit" of Phife Dawg on it.

then his contribution is probably more substantial than he thinks.

Adrian Younge talks about it on the podcast, and he says that he didn't want it to be like an Isaac Hayes or Curtis Mayfield situation where they don't go out on their best note. But according to him, Tribe went out on a great one.

86. "One important thing Ali said was that Tip asked all them "
In response to Reply # 82
Tue Nov-01-16 09:43 AM by natenate101

          

To stay in NY a little longer after Fallon. Said he had an idea. That's different than,"hey fellas, why don't you jump on a few of my joints and shit". Plus Phife traveled back and forth so they were actually working together in NY on multiple occasions.

The only thing clear is that Ali wasn't as involved as Tip and Phife. How does that equate to this being The Last Zulu plus Phife? He said Tip and Phife spent a lot of time together. Jarobi is onboard based on his comments too. A Tip lead project with Phife being the sidekick is exactly what I'd want anyway.

much to be present in NY while Phife was. Pretty sure Jarobi lives in NY now top, but not sure when he made the move and whether he was around when Phife was there. Very curious as to Jarobi's involvement now.

What are you 12?

I'm telling you to understand what you're discussing before speaking on it.

That's pretty sound advice and you should practice it not only on here but in your life.

And when you're called out...take a deep breath and understand why instead of continuing to dig your own hole.

I'll send you my invoice for the counseling session.

Tribe is my second favorite rap group of all time. Hearing that filth from them was kinda shocking. I posted here bc ppl here be knowing stuff and I'm not all into social media like that. I'm not losing sleep over this and I don't begrudge anyone who digs Tribe after learning about GP. My feelings about the group are conflicted. I dunno where I stand on them.

I'm sorry you feel some kinda way about me bc of stuff I posted in the past but try not to bitch up this post with that. The post that has your panties twisted exists for ppl to read on their own. We're not rehashing it here. Make another post or up that old one. But chill in here, dude.

fuck you.

You have derailed multiple posts on this topic and then have the nerve to say you're not losing sleep and tell someone else we're not rehashing shit?

Shut the entire fuck up.

You can feel how you feel and you have a legitimate gripe if the group stands by that bullshit track but the way you're going about it is pure bullshit.

You are 100% trolling on this topic.

Like I said, if you care that much...sign up for Twitter and demand an apology from Tribe instead of crying about the shit here and telling other posters to do your work for you. Get the fuck out of here with the "I don't do social media" because it would've taken you less effort and time than what you've been doing here.

Just let it go. If you don't care about GP that's fine. No need to attack me about Tribe's record.

Anyway - I'm excited about a new Tribe album and I'm sure you are too. It's coming next week after a long wait. I dunno that I'm paying for it but I wanna hear it.

If I hear back from Tip after I sen him a FB message I'll post it. Stay tuned. Or don't. Lol

fuck you.

You tried to shrug this guy off by telling him you have a low opinion of him.

I simply let you know that you're in the same box to many people.

You can't do and say whatever and then get upset when you get it in return.

I really don't understand what the problem is here. Georgie Porgie is foul and one can't use the time or their age as an excuse. SoWhat calling attention to this may be uncomfortable for those who are fans, but not nearly as unsettling as the song itself.

Look up and read how many replies you had to this issue. I replied because I wanted to; the better question is why did you feel the need to reply to him and in such an unnecessarily hostile manner. A little self-awareness goes a long way. Good luck sorting that out.

Sounds about right.

I replied because I wanted to. If I feel like calling his bullshit out then I will do so.

And I used "bitchass" because it fit the bill. And as you see after I called him out for that specific incident he ended up taking my advice because he knew I was right.

And if you actually read the thread...I responded to both him initially bringing up something he has already trolled on in multiple forums in turn making it about him and then for trying to talk shit to SP because he needed to check his bullshit.

207. "Does the Elton John feature change anything?"
In response to Reply # 91


          

First off, I agreed with you on your OG post. Just reading the lyrics on that song...man. Yeah they were young and yeah the early 90s were far less tolerant, but it's still shocking to see/hear that shit ESPECIALLY from a group like Tribe.

But the Elton John feature... I mean it's Elton FUCKIN John. One of the most publicly out-and-proud pop stars we've had. Does his involvement provide any comfort or any indication that Tribe isn't currently homophobic?

For QTip, I doubt he'Il ever make any public acknowledgement of Georgie. This feature might be all we get related to the subject!

which he and the fans have wanted for years, likely contributed to his failing health. Fucking life is crazy. Glad the mutual love and appreciation is at the forefront of this though. And we will still maybe get to hear Song In The Key of Phife? Wow.

Anyone want to add on? Maybe it'll give us an idea of his recent approach musically. Did Tip produce anything on that Abstract and Dragon mixtape?

In response to Reply # 127


  

          

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdENXIr18OA

it's a pretty standard disco burner, she sounds good on it but not like Mariah, usually these kinda records have different producers for the vocals anyway

If I go back to 2010 just a few more songs get added from my iTunes

R&B/Pop
John Legend - Tomorrow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVcRNHCV2wM
Santigold - GO! (also involves Switch): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORWbYuNP_MA
Quincy Jones - Betcha Wouldn't Hurt Me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur3slWJn_xY

Rap
Consequence - Got Me Trippin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UygC7utgCoI
Roc Marciano - Thread Count: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYyu5KWVDNI

and then he contributed to Lift Off by Watch the Throne and was listed as primary producer on That's My Bitch, which now that we've heard F.I.F.A. was likely mostly his beat even if Kanye and Jeff Bhasker also put their names on it.

There's two versions, both produced by Tip

Then there's the Q-Tip Version which goes 90s house with it (and is way better IMO)

It seems like a bad or rushed photoshop in an hour job, I hope it's just a teaser for fans and not the real thing, but like someone said, it's about the music not the cover art, even though with ATCQ's last album it was just a white background with black & silver lettering and I listen to "Love Movement" a lot.

In response to Reply # 159


  

          

And in between songs he stopped the show and told the crowd "A Tribe Called Quest are the purest motherfuckers in Hip Hop and y'all need to salute them." Everybpdy innthe crowd saluted them and so did he. Seeing him do stuff like this out of humility is really great.

they're sitting in a studio and "God Lives Through" is playing. Busta is just shaking his head in amazement of the song. I thought it was cool, because that's exactly how I feel about that song.

With Toure as the guest. He wrote that recent NYT piece detailing the album. Listening now.

Elton John and Jack White on the same track, Solid Wall Of Sound. Also sounds like there might be like 20 tracks or so. Fuckin A!

This is a great listen.

as I find his delivery irritating as hell, but this is shaping up to be something. I'm also hoping there's little to no Dilla on this becausr I really wanted to see one more Tribe album with just them, as far as the music goes.

But they still want to do what they love and big up their man as long as they can, so while a ATCQ show with no Phife will be odd at first, people will get over it in short order and celebrate he and the iconic group that he was a member of.

We see through all that boo boo like it's ghost shit... (c) Quelle Chris

In response to Reply # 206


          

Album is 60 mins long. One more day. Damn.

I need to know where to cop Tip's beanie as seen in the listening party pics.

I never realized DJ Scratch and Tribe were so tight. Would that be from his EPMD days or maybe via Busta? Curious.

on Amplified.

also, I'm pretty sure Scratch was Tip's tour/performance DJ for quite a stretch of his solo career.

Already pre ordered on iTunes, I'll still cop the CD when its available so I can add it to my Tribe collection, just feels right that way.

Off tomorrow so I plan on staying up until release and giving it that first listen before I go to sleep.

His words about Jarobi are not surprising to me. Evitan showed he could rhyme.

I know it debuted at #1, but I had no idea how well it was selling overall. Great to see the album has done well.

Great album. Just played it the other day for the first time in a few months and I still love it.
