A Tribe Called Quest was an American hip-hop group formed in 1985. Hailing out of Queens, Ney York, A Tribe Called Quest is considered to be one of the most influential groups to come out of hip-hop's "Golden Age" on the east coast. The group was made up of Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Jarobi White, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad. The group collaborated on and off together for about thirty years before officially calling it quits in 2017. The individual members all had side projects and solo careers that went on to showcase the same skills and talents that made a Tribe Called Quest so successful.
