Wu-Tang Clan & A Tribe Called Quest
Reading Time: 1 minute
I’m sure lots of things happened on November 3, 1993. But how about this: Wu-Tang Clan changed the sound and presentation of hip-hop forever with their debut, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
In another NYC borough, A Tribe Called Quest released their third and arguably greatest album (not to mention one of the best hip-hop albums of all time), Midnight Marauders.
That was 25 years ago. These albums are still discussed regularly. Still played constantly.
Michael Rapaport got Method Man to talk about Midnight Marauders and Q-Tip to discuss 36 Chambers on his podcast. It’s definitely worth a listen if you’re into classic hip-hop.
The above Soundcloud mix puts Wu-Tang vocals over the jazzy instrumentals of Midnight Marauders.
