A Tribe Called Quest

A Tribe Called Quest is an American hip hop group, formed in 1985, and is composed of MC/producer Q-Tip, MC Phife Dawg aka Phife Diggy (Malik Taylor), and DJ/producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad. A fourth member, rapper Jarobi White, left the group after their first album but rejoined in 1991. Along with De La Soul, the group was a central part of the Native Tongues Posse, and enjoyed the most commercial success out of all the groups to emerge from that collective. Many of their songs, such as "Bonita Applebum", "Can I Kick It?", "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo", "Scenario", "Check the Rhime", "Jazz (We've Got)", "Award Tour" and "Electric Relaxation" are regarded as classics by the hip hop community. more »

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man 
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand 
New York, NJ, N.C., VA 
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man 
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand 
Oaktown, L.A., San Fran, St. John 

People give your ears so I be sublime 
It's enjoyable to know you and the concubine 
Niggas, take off your coats ladies, act like gems 
Sit down, Indian style, as we recite these hymns 
See, lyrically I'm Mario Andretti on the mo-mo 
Ludicrous, we speedy, or infectious with the slow-mo 
Heard me in the eighties, J Beez on the promo 
On my never ending quest to get the paper on the caper 
But now, let me take it to the Queens side 
I'm taking it to Brooklyn side 
All the residential Questers to invade the way 
Hold up a second son, 'cause we almost there 
You can be a black man and lose all your soul 
You can be white and blue but don't crap the roll 
See my shit is universal, if you got knowledge and dolo 
Of delf for self, see there's no one else 
Who can drop it on the angle, acute at that 
So, do that, do that, do do that that that(come on) 
Do that, do that, do do that that that(OK) 
Do that, do that, do do that that that 
I'm bugging out, so let me get back 'cause I'm wettin niggas
So run and tell the others 'cause we are the brothas 
I learned how to build mics in my workshop class 
So give me this award, and let's not make it the last 

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man 
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand 
Chinatown, Spokane, London, Tokyo 
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man 
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand 
Houston, Delaware, DC, Dallas 

Back in '89, I simply slid into place 
Buddy, buddy, buddy all up in your face 
A lot of kids was busting rhymes but they had no taste 
Some said Quest was wack, but now is that the case 
I have a quest to have the mic in my hand 
Without that, it's like Kryptonite and Superman 
So Shaheed come in with the sugar cuts 
Phife Dawg's my name, but on stage, call me Dynomutt 
When was the last time you heard the Phifer sloppy 
Lyrics anonymous, you'll never hear me copy 
Top notch baby, never coming less 
Sky's the limit, you gots to believe up in Quest 
Sit back, relax, get up out the path 
If not that, here's the dance floor, come move that ass 
Non-believers, you can the steps 
I roll with Shaheed and the brother Abstract 
Niggas know the time when the Quest is in the jam 
I never let a statue tell me how nice I am 
Coming with more hits than the Braves and the Yankees 
Living mad phat like an over sized Bam-bi 
The wackest crews try to dis, it makes me laugh 
When my track record's longer than a DC-20 aircraft 
So, next time that you think you want something here 
Make something deffer, take that garbage to St. Elsewhere 

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man 
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand 
S.C., Maryland, New Orleans, Motown 
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man 
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand 
Chinatown, Spokane, London, Tokyo 
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man 
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand 
Houston, Delaware, DC, Dallas 
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man 
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand 
New York, NJ, N.C., VA
