Current Beats_q-tip

Happy New Years guys! Been busy at work getting back into the swing of things. Had a nice little break with the family for the holidays and been in my little hole ever since I got back into ATL. Anyways, with this new year I wanted to add a little more of my personal tastes into my blog just so you can learn a little more about me. "Current Beats" is just me trying not to be lame I guess. Lol. I wanted to share something for all you hip hop fans out there that miss the good 'ol days when hip hop was about the flow, the beats, the hooks, the punchlines, the energy, and most importantly the fun and love of the art. Now when you listen to the radio its a bunch of noise; no life and no soul. That's why I'm recomending this rare gem that totally blew me away from the first listen. This is one of those albums that grow on you and is appreciated more with each spin. Real 'ol school lyrics and synethic drums that reminds you of the old quest, but still fresh enough to be a fresh new experience. I admit when A Tribe Called Quest came out I was just starting kindergarden, but I latter learned to appreciate the contribution they have attributed to the hip hop culture. Anyways, this is a longer that usual post but I just wanted everyone to take notice to this album. I hope everyone had a good holiday, and hope everyone is ready for this new year of 2009! May everyone have a joyous and prosperous year and wish all of you success in the future. Take care and God bless.




You were in kindergarten when Tribe Called Quest hit the scene. Damnit I am old. I am HUGE old school hip hop fanatic!!! Tribe , De La Soul , Africa Bombada , Nucleus , Funkdubiest , Das Efx , and ON AND ON.I could not agree more. Rap stopped being great in 1989. I am a huge Tip fan. I need to get that album. I have been playing Common's Universal Mind Control on repeat for two weeks solid just to get some old school electrofunk beats!
Keep up the blog. Awsome.
