A Tribe Called Quest, Midnight Marauders (1993)

Label: Jive/BMG

Pusha T:Midnight Marauders brought in everybody. When The Low End Theory came out, there was still guys saying, ‘Get that shit out of here. I’m cool. I can’t really relate.’ They polished it on Marauders and it was digestible for everybody. Q-Tip was cute to bitches on Marauders. [Laughs.]

“On The Low End Theory they were weirdos but if you had the eclectic taste to get it, you’d love it. If you were just hardcore like, ‘Fuck it. I can’t do it if it’s not straight-forward,’ you couldn’t get it. Marauders brought everybody in. Cohesively, Marauders is definitely in the higher end of my Top 25.”
