Playlist 31.May.13 – The Native Tongues

With our good friends at Commonwealth Bar & Stage bringing down Ali Shaheed Muhammad from A Tribe Called Quest and Maseo Plug 3 from De La Soul on July 24th (tickets here), we figured we’d get you ready with a little tribute to arguably the greatest collective in hip-hop history; The Native Tongues.  For those who are unaware, The Native Tongues were founded by The Jungle Brothers, De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest in the late 80s and also included other legends Queen Latifah, Black Sheep, Monie Love, Chi Ali.  Some fringe acts closely associated with the posse included, Leaders Of The New School, KMD, Fu-Schnickens, The Beatnuts, Brand Nubian and in recent years newer acts like Common, Mos Def and Talib Kweli.  Their legacy on the rap music landscape remains indelible.
