A Tribe Called Quest x ALIFE...






The release of the ALIFE x NaS collaborative t-shirts and lighters saw much fanfare and welcoming. Hot on the heels of that release is this current collaborative t-shirt set donning lyrics from veteran hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest. These shirts will also be sold at the Rock The Bells Tour featuring scheduled performances from the Tribe themselves!

The shirts display the first four bars of A Tribe Called Quest's song 'Excursions' off of their 1991 effort The Low End Theory!

For the record Steven Roberts is so non-economical! These shirts will be purchased and we will be buried in them. Enough said.

Giddy. Like schoolgirls.

[Q-Tip]
Back in the days when I was a teenager
Before I had status and before I had a pager
You could find The Abstract listening to hip hop
My pops used to say, it reminded him of be-bop
I said, well daddy don't you know that things go in cycles
The way that Bobby Brown is just ampin like Michael
Its all expected, things are for the lookin
If you got the money, Quest is for the bookin
Come on everybody, let's get with the fly modes
Still got room on the truck, load the back boom
Listen to the rhyme, to get a mental picture
of this black man, through black woman victim
Why do I say that, cuz I gotta speak the truth man
Doing what we feel for the music is the proof and
Planted on the ground, the act is so together
Bonafied strong, you need leverage to sever
The unit, yes, the unit, yes, the unit called the jazz is
deliberatley cheered LP filled with streeet goods
You can find it on the rack in your record store (store)
If you get the record, then your thoughts are adored
and appreciated, cause we're ever so glad we made it
We work hard, so we gotta thank God
Dishin out the plastic, do the dance till you spastic
If you dis... it gets drastic
Listen to the rhymes, cuz its time to make gravy
If it moves your booty, then shake, shake it baby
All the way to Africa a.k.a. The Motherland (uh)
Stick out the left, then I'll ask for the other hand
That's the right hand, Black Man (man)
Only if you was noted as my man (man)
If I get the credit, then I'll think I deserve it
If you fake moves, don't fix your mouth to word it
Get in the zone of positivity, not negativity
Cuz we gotta strive for longevity
If you botch up, what's in that (ass) (what?)
A pair of Nikes, size ten-and-a-half (come on, come on)

Shirts can be pruchased at ALIFE Rivington Club NYC
