Friday Got Me All…

Song of the Day: Electric Relaxation

Friday is here and not a moment too soon. Now it’s time to chill with Electric Relaxation, brought to you by one of the pioneers of the Hip Hop game, the legendary crew – A Tribe Called Quest. Made up of four emcees, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed, Jarobi White and Q-Tip, who also produced the majority of their albums.
Similar to fellow members of the Native Tongues Posse, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest had a jazzy sound in the tracks they recorded. A Tribe Called Quest, disbanded  in 1998, after thirteen years. Their last album released was entitled the Love Movement, which included the hit single, Find a Way, which J. Dilla produced.

Electric Relaxation is one of them jams that any music lover can appreciate. The track comes from ATCQ’s, third studio album entitled, Midnight Marauders, released in 1993. Just like their first two albums, Midnight Marauders was a Hip Hop classic and is always classified as one of the best Hip Hop albums of all time. The album included popular tracks like Award Tour, Hot Sex and Oh My God. All the tracks on the album have their classic jazzy beats and laid back flow that gives you the perfect sounds to just chill with.

A Tribe Called Quest, are legends in the game, and with Q-Tip still producing and making appearances on tracks, the crew’s vibe rocks on and expected to release a new album despite the absence of Phife, who was diabetic, died on March 22, 2016 due to complications from diabetes. A few additional tracks to add to your A Tribe Called Quest mixtape include;Find a Way (The Love Movement), Crew (Beats Rhymes and Life),Scenario (The Low End Theory) and the groups first single, I Left My Wallet in El Segundo (Peoples Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rythym) .
