The 100 Best Native Tongues Songs

57. A Tribe Called Quest "8 Million Stories" (1993)

Producer: Skeff Anselm
Album: Midnight Marauders
Label: Jive, BMG

This is probably the last time that Phife ever shined on a solo track. The track interrupts the joyous mood of much of Midnight Marauders: It sees Phife recount a day full of mishaps, mistakes, inconveniences, ejections, and problems with a sharp sense of humor. It's hard to feel sorry for someone whose average day doesn't involve traditional employment, but it's an amusing song nonetheless.
