How does one pay homage to A Tribe Called Quest? The seminal rap group brought jazz into the genre, resurrecting timeless rhythms to create masterpieces such as The Low End Theory and Midnight Marauders. Seventeen years after their last album, they resurrected themselves with an intense, socially conscious record, We Got It from Here . . . Thank You 4 Your Service, which arrived when fans needed it most, in the aftermath of the 2016 election. Poet and essayist Hanif Abdurraqib digs into the group's history and draws from his own experience to reflect on how its distinctive sound resonated among fans like himself. The result is as ambitious and genre bending as the rap group itself. Abdurraqib traces the Tribe's creative career, from their early days as part of the Afrocentric rap collective known as the Native Tongues, through their first three classic albums, to their eventual breakup and long hiatus. Their work is placed in the context of the broader rap landscape of the 1990s, one upended by sampling laws that forced a reinvention in production methods, the East Coast/West Coast rivalry that threatened to destroy the genre, and some record labels' shift from focusing on groups to individual MCs. Throughout the narrative Abdurraqib connects the music and cultural history to their street-level impact. Whether he's remembering The Source magazine cover announcing the Tribe's 1998 breakup or writing personal letters to the group after bandmate Phife Dawg's death, Abdurraqib seeks the deeper truths of A Tribe Called Quest; truths that, like the low end, the bass, are not simply heard in the head, but felt in the chest.… (mais)

This book was everything I wanted from a music history and has really got me thinking about writing about music. I've been feeling dreamy all week thinking about this book, made a playlist for it on Google Play (Abdurraqib said he made a playlist on Spotify of songs sampled by Tribe, so you should definitely check that out), and wish now that Abdurraqib could write all history for me. This was great, too, because I think I may be a hair older than the author, but we're essentially the same age, so it was cool to get his take on things as someone who came of age in the same era. Anywho, if you love music, love reading about music, love Tribe, are only a little familiar with Tribe, have no idea who Tribe is, love history and social commentary, love memoir, love beautiful writing...this book is for you.

A fascinating twining of the history of Tribe the history of rap and of Black music more broadly, the history of Abdurraqib and the history of America. The language here is spectacular, Abdurraqib's music knowledge is encyclopedic, and this man can write. This is a deeply personal book that ends up being an exploration of what it means, to be a Black man, of all the different forms that can take while still sharing so many commonalities. I thought it dragged in the middle a bit and never regained the energy of the first half which was unbelievably good) but it was still excellent. ( )

This was just amazing; Abdurraqib writes so beautifully about music, and about the music of A Tribe Called Quest here specifically, but he also manages to do so much more--explore brotherhood and mercy, take small dives into histories of the publishing of Black magazines. I really loved this more than I expected to, and it makes me want to read more music writing like it. It's both personal and historical in these really wonderful ways, and I really enjoyed it. ( )

Exceptional, brilliant, and so powerfully moving. My only criticism is that I hated ugly crying through some of the chapters. Hanif Abdurraqib has written one of the most extraordinary pieces of music criticism I've ever read. I know, I know... so much hyperbole but, like, read this book, you'll understand.

He captures, in the story of Tribe, a sweep of important recent history with acuity and love. It is a section of history just now being discussed with this kind of intellectual rigor as we enter (hopefully) the final stretch of this presidency and era of consciousness.

I'll basically follow Abdurraqib anywhere after this book. I'm looking forward to reading everything else he's written. ( )
