A Tribe Called Quest fans behold: The legendary hip hop ensemble has reunited for an interview honoring the 20 year anniversary of their landmark album “The Low End Theory.” Q-Tip, (Kamaal Ibn John Fareed), Phife Dawg, (Malik Taylor), Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi White buried the collective hatchet to stage a summit for VH1’s special on their second, critically acclaimed album. This is crew’s first joint interview since 1998.

Released in 1991, The Low End Theory was featured on Time magazine’s All-Time 100 Albums List and was named the 154th album of all-time by Rolling Stone editors. The record was responsible left an inspirational mark with hits like “Check The Rhime” “Jazz (We Got)” and “Scenario.”

A sign of positivity for hip hop connoisseurs and Tribe fans alike as it seems the brothas finally found a way to move past some of the drama chronicled (and perhaps even aggravated by) Michael Rapaport’s documentary on the group called “Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest.”

    The Low End Theory was the best album EVER. And to think that it was followed by Common’s ‘Resurrection’. Wow! It was an awesome experience to go thru my teens and early 20s w/ A Tribe Called Quest. Nothing beats Jazz infused w/hip hop.

      …And to think, they outdid themselves on “Midnight Marauders”. It’s not every day you can find a hip hop group with back-to-back classic albums (EPMD, The Roots, Little Brother and The Pharcyde are the few that did such a thing).
