Tribe Called Quest-Steve Biko

Here we go, you know that I’m the rebel. Throwing out the wicked like God did the Devil.

If you couldn’t tell already, I love A Tribe Called Quest. If I were to pick the perfect group, it would be these guys. My favorite album is Midnight Marauders and this is one of my favorite songs on said album. Shortly before the first time I heard this song I had done a research paper on apartheid in South Africa and Steve Biko was a prominent figure for my paper. An activist/martyr/inspirational man whose life was cut short for his cause. This song really vibed with me and although there were a few other songs that Tribe put out that were better (who am I kidding? They’re all good), this is one of my favorites.
