A Tribe Called Quest, The Low End Theory (1991)

Label: Jive/RCA

Pusha T: "The Low End Theory was the coolest, hippiest album. It gave the alternative guy a face a little bit. The Low End Theory gave the non-thug, the not Chuck-D-esque rapper, the woven-belt guy, the twisted-hair guy, the railroad-pants guy, the house-shirt off-the-shoulder guy an identity. The soundtrack was just fucking phenomenal for it.”
