A Tribe Called Quest – Midnight [1993]

I tell you, Low End Theory might be one of my favourite Hip Hop albums of all time but I think Midnight Marauders might actually inch it out of my top five. The whole album is absolutely incredible, with a far more mature sound than the more laid back and jazzy Low End Theory. This track is a classic example of the direction the Tribe took after L.E.T. The lyrics get their rightful place at the head of the track with the bass and break bubbling in the background. In this, that building, malevolent synth riff keeps the track moving in the right direction and complements the lyrical content perfectly.
