Relax Yourself Girl, Please Settle Down

This song doesn't even need an introduction.

A Tribe Called Quest was one of the most prolific rap groups the game has seen. They were a perfect counterbalance to the newly popular gangster rap in the early 90's. Phife and Q-Tip lyrics were political, artful and often fun. I couldn't decide on which song of theirs to feature but I chose 'Electric Relaxation' for the video, it being shot in Queens. Holla!

Q-Tip is my favorite rapper and me and Zipporah Pearce went to the kick off of the Fort Greene Summer festival where he and Pete Rock DJ'ed. It was dope. He is dope. This song right here, is dope.
