Few tunes have been heard as regularly at The Doctor’s Orders events over the past 5+ years as those recorded by the greatest Hip-Hop group of all time A Tribe Called Quest, so we are ecstatic to have one of their three members in the shape of Ali Shaheed Muhammad join us for an Exclusive DJ set at On The Real.
Queens Natives A Tribe Called Quest reshaped the Hip-Hop scene with the release of their five classic albums that all pushed the soulful, jazz drenched sounds that became not only thier trademark but that of Golden Era Hip-Hop on the whole. With a catalogue of stone wall classics such as ‘Can I Kick It’, ‘Award Tour’, ‘Electric Relaxation’ ‘Scenario’, ‘Bonita Applebum” and the Dilla produced ‘Stressed Out’ the Tribe sound is as popular today as ever. Having recently reformed to tour and with a documentary on the band due to be released shortly A Tribe Called Quest are now back on top of the game where they belong.
Away from Tibe Ali was a founding member of the production outfit The Ummah, alongside Q-Tip and J-Dilla, producing great tracks not only for Tribe but Busta Rhymes, D’Angelo and Janet Jackson to name a few. He then went on to show an even more soulful side of his work in founding Lucy Pearl alongside Raphael Sadeeq and Dawn Robinson. With this wealth of musical experience behind him this exclusive DJ set it sure to take a guaranteed packed house through a great journey of Hip-Hop, R&B, Soul and beyond.
As ever these visiting guests are welcomed by one of the strongest resident line ups in the land as London’s finest DJ 279 and Spin Doctor set the mood with their brilliant party blend of classic and brand new bangers. Holding down duties on the mic are our host MC Prankster the Trini Gladiata who will be keeping the crowd involved with his classic crowd hyping style while the brilliant Skillit joins us for a live PA.
