A Tribe Called Quest is quite a phenomenal name of one of the famous American hip-hop group, which was formed in the year of 1988. The group is comprised of members like rapper/producer Q-Tip, nickname of Kamal Fareed, rapper Phife Dawg (Malik Taylor), and the DJ and producer Ali Muhammad.

Q-Tip's had been really appreciated by audience and critics for his very distinctive vocal style and creative rhymes, the group had begun to generate a lot of interest amongst record label talent scouts.
They had got a chance to sign a demo deal with Geffen Records in the year of 1989, it was the time, when the group had produced a five song demo which included later album tracks including Description Of A Fool, I Left My Wallet in El Segundo and Can I Kick It Geffen had not offered a proper recording contract to the group, but instead the group was granted permission to shop for a deal elsewhere while retaining the Geffen financed songs.
The group had received lucrative offers for multi-album deals from a variety of labels both big and small, the group showed early savvy in opting for a modest deal offered by Jive Records.
