The 50 Best Rap Album Titles Ever

34. A Tribe Called Quest, Beats, Rhymes and Life (1996)


Label: Jive, BMG

Tribe's fourth album may have disappointed musically, but it's title was a pitch-perfect definition of hip-hop. It almost makes up for the pretentious, novel-length title of their 1990 debut, People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm (which, despite the fact it's one of our favorites, we only remembered the full name of thanks to Google). Anyway, it's pretty easy to guess which album Michael Rapaport named his extremely dope Tribe doc after.
