About this deal

Just to complete the picture, each of the first three albums, including Low End Theory, were released on vinyl at the time of their release in Europe. A 1991 landscape-changing release from the pioneering hip-hop group, The Low End Theory embraced a minimalist approach and set the tables for the alternate rap movement that followed.

Initially only two of Tribes' first three albums were released commercially on vinyl, those being "Peoples Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm" and "Midnight Marauders", as single vinyl LP's. The Jungle Brothers' Done by the Forces of Nature is my personal favorite album from the Native Tongues era.We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The Low End Theory took Tribe to that fabled "next level" hip hop acts always bang on about by performing the trick every authenticity-obsessed artist most dearly wants to execute. It states HIP 117, but the single record is marbled orange, has plain white inner sleeve (not the picture sleeve) and has a poster included. He named "Check the Rhime" and "Buggin' Out" as highlights, while giving the album a three-star honorable mention, indicating "an enjoyable effort consumers attuned to its overriding aesthetic or individual vision may well treasure.

The Anthology (European/UK) has the same tracklisting as the US versions, albeit that Award Tour was placed as the last track, rather than as track 3. The Low End Theory is an unqualified success, the perfect marriage of intelligent, flowing raps to nuanced, groove-centered productions. The trio also takes on the rap game with a pair of hard-hitting tracks: "Rap Promoter" and "Show Business," the latter a lyrical soundclash with Q-Tip and Phife plus Brand Nubian's Diamond D, Lord Jamar, and Sadat X.

The 7" collection is housed in a deluxe, fabric-wrapped 45 singles carrying case, with 360-degree original album art and custom inner wrapped ATCQ logo graphics and group photo. The album is noted for its use of the double bass, "crisp" and "live-sounding" drum programming, and "deftly placed samples or electric keyboards. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. On February 19, 1992, the album was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), with shipments of 500,000 copies in the United States, and on February 1, 1995, it was certified platinum by the RIAA, with shipments of one million copies.

After switching managers, the group demanded more advances from Jive, who eventually extended their recording contract for one more album. The album introduced the lyrical interplay and chemistry between Q-Tip and Phife Dawg, the latter of whom experienced a lyrical breakout. The Low End Theory is regarded as one of the most influential albums in hip-hop history, with Corbin Reiff of Complex declaring that it "broke major ground and pushed the sonic envelope of the entire rap genre. The Low End Theory is celebrated as the closest and most brilliant fusions of jazz atmosphere and hip hop attitude ever recorded.

These events created a disillusionment with the music industry among the group, which affected "both material and approach" on The Low End Theory. However, the negotiations between the group and Jive lasted over a year and strained their relationship. Tribe represented freedom, and some 30 years after 'The Low End Theory,' it’s still a sonic marvel and one of the best hip-hop albums of all-time. A quarter century later, The Low End Theory is as ubiquitous to the language of modern jazz as Kind of Blue and A Love Supreme, its seamless fusion of beats and bop providing the seeds for future greats . During the recording sessions, the group fired their manager Kool DJ Red Alert and joined Russell Simmons's Rush Artist Management, with Chris Lighty serving as their new manager.
