This week, OB and Shan talk with Brooklyn native Ali Shaheed Muhammad (legendary founder and member of A Tribe Called Quest & Lucy Pearl) and his musical collaborator Adrian Younge. The pair have worked together (or individually) with artists and acts such as Souls Of Mischief, Roy Ayers, Azymuth, Marcos Valle (and being sampled by DJ Premier and Royce 5’9″), so we get quite the “lowdown” on their careers spanning across a wide range of music. We also go deep into their story and play a bag of their beats and productions. Check them out for yourself here.


Check out this clip of Ron Carter discussing his contribution to the all-time classic album from A Tribe Called Quest, his playing on “Verses From The Abstract” on The Low End Theory:
