This album is underrated in my opinion

General-Jordan says:

You checked out the remix for Jam? It’s insanely good

Eric Stewart says:

I got all ATCQ catalog – Group and Solo.
For me, Beats, Rhymes and Life was the last great classic work Tribe did. Consequence and J. Dilla aka Jay Dee were the main problem that was breaking the chemistry between Q-Tip and Phile. In the words of late Chris Lighty – ‘The Beats, Rhymes and Life album was the beginning of the end’. The Tribe documentary brings me the info about their 4th release. For The Love Movement, I slept on that album except the remix songs as ‘bonus tracks’. I am 100% agree with that. Phife moved to ATL to have a better life. So when he went back to New York, Tip didn’t told him anything. That’s messed up. So, The only albums I stick from Tribe was their first four classics especially BR&L record. Very good review. Keep it Hip-Hop!!!!

Eric Stewart says:

Happy 20th Anniversary BR&L!!

Nikos AliaCash says:

100% agree about what you said after reviewing each song – I used to consider this album kinda average for a long time, with only 3 or 4 very good tracks (Jam, Phony rappers, Stressed out and Once again). the main reason to that is the arrival of consequence and jaydee, who are “breaking” the ATCQ spirit, but not in a bad way I think. but you just have to set apart their 3 first albums in your mind because this one is completely different(but still very good). although Keep it moving became one of my favourite song since i’m a big fan of west coast hip-hop

Thanks for this Steve.
