The Creators of A Tribe Called Quest Mural Take Us Behind the Scenes

September 24th, 1991 A Tribe Called Quest released their sophomore album, The Low End Theory.

Touted as a classic amongst fans and the Hip-Hop elite (the album would receive the coveted 5 mics in The Source), the 14-track LP featured the singles “Check the Rhime,” “Jazz (We’ve Got)” and “Scenario” as well as other stand-out cuts such as “Vibes and Stuff,” “Buggin’ Out” and “”Everything Is Fair.”

To be honest, in hindsight, nearly every song on the album should have been considered singles, hence why it’s a perfect rap album.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of The Low End Theory, an official mural was erected at the same location where video for “Check the Rime” was shot: Linden Blvd. and 192nd Street in Queens, New York.

Check out a making-of of the mural up top, featuring Jaorbi’s father, Benjamin White and Phife Dawg’s widow, Deisha Head Taylor.
