We’ve made it (finally, right? Ha) all the way through A Tribe Called Quest Weekend, give yourselves a round of applause! For the final post, I’m dropping this compilation of rare material that came out in Japan a few years ago.

As of 2006, “I C U (Doin’ It)” is the most recent Tribe song, which was released in 2003. “That Shit” is the only A Tribe Called Quest song released with vocals by Jay Dee. The “Scenario Remix” was the B-side to the original. The O\original “Jam” can be found on Beats, Rhymes and Life, as well as the original “Stressed Out.”

Thanks for ridin’ with me this weekend. Let me know if there’s any Tribe stuff you want to see, and I might post it. If you have trouble downloading anything, I’ll re-up links per request.

Stay tuned for more “Weekend” dedications to come in the future, Enjoy!

Since it’s A Tribe Called Quest Weekend here at HTT, I’m goin’ in. What better time to drop this post than now?

Tribe Vibes Volumes 1-3 is an epic vinyl collection compiled by Strictly Breaks for the true hip-hop head. Much respect due to T.R.O.Y., where I first spotted these enormous lists of samples spanning Tribe’s prolific discography. This is an absolutely essential download, so I re-upped my own links plus included the original post.

Check below for the track lists & download links. I can’t express how much I appreciate the good folks at T.R.O.Y. Strictly Breaks and Ivan for putting me on to these projects. Word on the street ‘net is there might be a Volume 4 coming soon. Stay tuned, Enjoy!
