A Tribe Called Quest – Midnight Marauders Videos

Hot Sex first appeared on the “Boomerang” soundtrack released in 1992. It was later included on the European version of Midnight Marauders. Throughout the video, Q-Tip can be seen wearing a ski mask looking like a ’93 Ghostface Killer. So why was he wearing a mask? Well, Q-Tip was jumped by Wreckx-N-Effect‘s thugged out associates prior to the video shoot leaving him with a serious eye jammie. Phife Dawg in “Jazz”: ‘Strictly hardcore tracks, not a new jack swing’. Unable to hide the wounds with makeup, Q-Tip was forced to wear the mask for the video. Hot Sex wasn’t included on the A Tribe Called Quest Anthology DVD. Thanks to Mamli for providing me with a high quality video tape rip. The rest of the videos taken from the DVD are Award Tour, Electric Relaxtion, & Oh My God. Enjoy!

Chi-Ali – The Youngest Native Tonguer

Monday, June 1st, 2009

Chi-Ali Griffith. I think everyone already knows the story behind this guy, but let’s recapitulate it once more, in short notes.

Chi-Ali started rapping around age 12-13. He has made his first appearance in The Apollo club in London, together with Queen Latifah and Jungle Brothers. He jumped in after Afrika from the Jungle Brothers missed his flight to London. He also said that he had wrote around 40% of his first and only album and the rest had been done by Dres, De La Soul, Q-tip and Phife and of course The Beatnuts who were involved in the production of the album as well.
In the interviews which you can see if you scroll down the whole page, Chi-Ali talks about those days and about the time after he has commited that famous murder in 2000.

Check also Roadrunner version with Dove rapping. Thanks to Roy Johnson.
My guessing about this would be that Dove probably wanted to show to Chi-Ali how to rap and flow over that beat.
