I first heard A Tribe Called Quest’s music when I was a freshman at Howard University. My introduction to the group was their single, “I Left My Wallet in El Segundo,” and I was unsure I felt about it. With it’s laid-back, hippy vibe, this song was unlike any rap song I’d heard. But the more I listened to it, the more I got into it. By the time they released their debut album People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, I was a bonafide fan.

My fandom went to the next level when A Tribe Called Quest released The Low End Theory, one of the best hip-hop albums of all time. This is not up for debate. If you disagree, I will fight you.

Although their subsequent album releases didn’t measure up to The Low End Theory, the group produced some awesome songs such as “Electric Relaxation,” “Award Tour,” “Hot Sex,” “We the People,” and “Stressed Out.”

Image my delight when I walked into a Vans store and saw the Vans x A Tribe Called Quest Collection. Vans and A Tribe Called Quest teamed up on a collection of footwear paying tribute to the iconic alternative hip-hop group. Check out the sneakers in the collection.
