Ten A Tribe Called Quest Rap Videos (R.I.P. Phife)

[Phife Dawg courtesy Wikimedia Commons]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: The time has finally arrived. This week we're going to talk about "We Got It From Here... Thank You 4 Your Service" but before we do that it's worth taking a look back at the history that lead up to this point.

For me hip-hop music and A Tribe Called Quest are essentially inseparable. After all Tribe was my first rap concert, and the progression they showed from one album to the next was incredible. Even though some people will swear by "People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm" and completely diss "The Love Movement," I took something away from each album that holds to my heart today.

Editorial: Is Nintendo Purposefully Causing Scalping?

[NES Classic photo courtesy Steve Juon]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: What you see here is the NES Classic Edition, also known as the Nintendo Classic or "NES Mini" depending on who you are talking to. It's arguably the hottest toy/game of the Christmas shopping season, though I've also heard and read that Spin Master's Hatchimals could give it a run for the literal money in terms of how hard it is to find for your kids. Some might see this editorial as an opportunity to bemoan the capitalistic consumer driven culture we live in, and on the right day at the right time that might be true, but given consuming is almost inherently in our nature I'm not actually going there this time. I don't hate being a consumer after all - I like video games, music, and collectibles as much as the next man, woman or millennial. You probably do too since you're reading a site called "Rap Reviews" after all - you like to consume rap music in physical or digital form.

Being a consumer isn't a shameful thing. After all how would we live if we didn't consume food, and how would we breath if we didn't consume air? If you view consumption as inherently evil you're saying mere existence is evil too.
