Sundays with A Tribe Called Quest: Vol. 13

Just the other day, I was speaking in amazement at what a hold Barack Obama has right now on popular culture, especially in the form of T-shirts. (I’m just as guilty for buying into it.)

We’ve all seen the shirts with Obama as Superman and others sporting cutesy slogans playing off his name: “Barack n Roll” or “Obama said knock you out.”

Just when I thought it had all been done, I find this reinterpretation of the cover for my favorite album borrowing Obama’s likeness.

The back of the shirt swipes a line from Award Tour:

It’s only a matter of time before someone overlays an image of Obama’s face on The Chronic cover, right?

No matter. You should still vote for the man. And if you don’t own Midnight Marauders, well, then we have some fundamental issues we need to discuss.

One thought on “Sundays with A Tribe Called Quest: Vol. 13”

  1. Yes!

    As a sidenote, I’m thoroughly on the side of Midnight Marauder as Tribe’s best album. Others swear by The Low End Theory, but as good as it is, it’s just no MM.
