Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad. One of - if not the best - hip-hop groups to ever exist. Pioneers of the D.A.I.S.Y. (Da Inner Sound Y'all) genre of hip-hop along with De La Soul. Also a part of the Native Tongues Posse. They forged the gratest hip-hop album of all time (IMO): "The Low End Theory"
"If knowledge is the key then just show me the lock
Got the scrawny legs but I move just like Lou Brock
With speed. I'm agile plus I'm worth your while
One hundred percent intelligent black child
My optic presentation sizzles the retina
How far must I go to gain respect? Ummmm
Well, it's kind of simple, just remain your own
Or you'll be crazy sad and alone
Industry rule number four thousand and eighty:
Record company people are shady"
