One year after De la Soul re-drew the map for alternative rap, fellow Native Tongues brothers A Tribe Called Quest released their debut, the quiet beginning of a revolution in non-commercial hip-hop. People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm floated a few familiar hooks, but it wasn't a sampladelic record.
Rappers Q-Tip and Phife Dawg dropped a few clunky rhymes, but their lyrics were packed with ideas, while their flow and interplay were among the most original in hip-hop. From the beginning, Tribe focused on intelligent message tracks but rarely sounded A Tribe Called Quest - Peoples Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm about them.
With "Pubic Enemy," they put a humorous spin on the touchy subject of venereal disease including a special award for the most inventive use of the classic "scratchin'" sampleand moved right into a love rap, "Bonita Applebum," which alternated a sitar sample with the type of jazzy keys often heard on later Tribe tracks. Next to important message tracks with great productions, A Tribe Called Quest could also be deliciously playful or frustratingly unserious, depending on your opinion.
Contrary to the message in the track titles, the opener "Push It Along" and "Rhythm Dedicated to the Art of Moving Butts " were fusions of atmospheric samples with tough beats, special attention being paid to a pair of later Tribe sample favorites, jazz guitar and '70s fusion synth.
