Vibes and Stuff & Jazz (We've Got)-A Tribe Called Quest

Believe it or not, I found out about A Tribe Called Quest my freshman year on the bus to school by a random guy sitting next to me. Eventually that guy became a close friend and he actually turned me onto old school hip-hop, or hip-hop in general. On every album they avoided profane subjects and actually addressed  issues of importance. They rapped about gender roles and the production/effects of their music. It's sort of a difficult thing to describe without having heard it, but these guys were always groovin'.

The groups members consisted of Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Phife Dawg, and Jarobi White. The group came out with their album The Low End Theory in September of 1991, it was a whole mixture of jazzy beats and mellow rap.
