"Verses From the Abstract" by A Tribe Called Quest

Everybody knows A Tribe Called Quest. The Queens-based rap group is among the many outstanding old school rap groups, along with the likes of NWA and their fellow big apple rappers, Wu Tang Clan. It took me a little while to appreciate the tribe; their flow is very distinctly old school, and it held me back from hearing, and subsequently enjoying their rhymes. I don't claim to be a Tribe expert, but "Verses From the Abstract" has always seemed, to me, an under appreciated classic. I mean, they rhyme "booty" with "duty," and that just about sold it for me. Listen after the Triborough Bridge.
