Every once in a while, we hit you with a tribute that requires several hours
of your time. This is one of them. The Native Tongues collective are
comprised of some of the most important, most influential and some of
biggest innovators hip-hop has seen. With the help and hustle of DJ Red
Alert and Chris Lighty, the Native Tongues were a force to be reckoned with.
The Jungle Brothers paved the way for groups like De La Soul, A Tribe Called
Quest and Black Sheep. Prior to The Flava Unit, Queen Latifah was this
crew's Den mother. Along with her protégé Monie Love, they were both
instrumental in helping the female movement in hip-hop. The Native Tongues
provided plenty of classic albums, countless anthems and produced more
offspring than Joe Jackson (RIP). The Natives helped jumpstart the careers
of Busta Rhymes, Chi-Ali, Mos Def, J Dilla and have influenced artists such
as Brand Nubian, K.M.D., Common, The Beatnuts, Bush Babees, The Roots, Slum
Village, Little Brother, Kanye West, Black Star, Pharrell, Hieroglyphics,
The Pharcyde, J5, Kedrick Lamar, Pusha T, Andre 3000 and even Nas. They've
influenced everyone. Odds are, every rapper imaginable has heard Straight
Out The Jungle, De La Soul Is Dead, The Low End Theory, Buhloone Mindstate,
Midnight Marauders, or Stakes Is High and possibly has several of those
albums listed among their favorites, too. The Native Tongue brand was strong
despite some internal conflict, growing pains and different career paths.
They left an everlasting impression on hip-hop. It is our privilege to
present to you The Native Tongues Tribute Part 1. You won't find another NT
tribute like this and we're just getting started!
