If I were to take part in my own feature, I Used to Love H.E.R., and write a little something about my favorite hip-hop album, the choice is pretty easy: Midnight Marauders by A Tribe Called Quest. At a time when I was devouring so much hip-hop, Midnight Marauders was the pinnacle, a classic that just begged to have all its lyrics memorized (and I did).
So as far as I’m concerned, Tribe deserves any and all tributes, like the Q-Tip for President mix from J. Period. The latest will come from DJ Chong Wizard, a mixtape called Eclectic Relaxation. Thick Magazine offered up a single from the mix, an updated version of Lyrics to Go by Del the Funky Homosapien, which is only appropriate since he was one of the many to grace the Midnight Marauders album artwork (third row from bottom, second from left).
