After Doggystyle beat out The Infamous, I no longer have faith in the voting on BX.

I know. Lol......

A tisket, a tasket, what's in mama's basket?
Some veggie links and some fish that stinks
Why, just the other day, I went to Grandma's house
Smelled like she conjured up a mouse
Eggs was frying, ham was smelling
In ten minutes, she started yelling (come and get it)
And the gettin's were good
I said, I shouldn't eat, she said, I think you should
But I can't, I'm plagued by vegetarians
No cats and dogs, I'm not a veterinarian
Strictly collard greens and a occasional steak
Goes on my plate
Asparagus tips look yummy, yummy, yummy
Candied yams inside my tummy
A collage of good eats, some snacks or nice treats
Apple sauce and some nice red beets
This is what we snack on when we're Questin'

I love Tribe but this to me is like comparing John Stockton to MJ. Stock is very good and steady but MJ rips your heart out every time

Ten after one I think I'll hop the horse
Downtown A and 3 of course
Just came from fishing, couldn't get a catch
Downtown they'll probably have a batch
A whiting sandwich and a Guinness Stout
But with the beer though I had a bout
So I exchanged it for some apple juice
I had the blues but I shook them loose
A jeep is blasting from the urban streets
Loops of funk over hardcore beats
The moon dabbles in the morning sky
As the minutes just creep on by
I get a thought and here comes my Tribe
Ritual shakes and in good vibes
Like always the Quest begins
In the mist though but the rhythms moving
We find a spot and we sit and chat
Speaking on the status quo of rap
A derelict makes a real long speech
We pay attention to the words we reap
When he was done we rattled on
There was no rush because it wasn't dawn
We pointed things out about these times
The worlds famines and the crazy crimes
Inflation of the nation, it bothers me
I better go gold, to pay the taxes
Gotta be swift 'n society
The man whose made is the man who maxes
The grounds for living are being discussed
As we go, it gets close to dusk
Gather thoughts and savor breath
'Cause there's only a few hours left

Tribes first album is my favorite.

There was nothing sounding like this when this album dropped.

The beats and production was crazy and it “gave birth” to some of the best rappers to come after it who were heavily influenced by this Tribe album.

Hold up this is a landslide. You got Tribe F'd up. Wanna go bar 4 bar!?

Are you ready, Lu? This one is for you

"¿Cómo está usted?" or "Comment allez-vous"
Lucien, I'll leave it up to you

C'mon Tobin what you got!?
Son that was Tribes first album, not hard enough to go against Big’s last.

solid post and very true! rappers and beat makers/producers too

for me the debate isn't just tribe vs big ... it's what did the tribe album mean in 1990 vs what did LAD mean in 1997
bonnita applebaum sounds whatever now but at the time ppl's wigs was flipped - like ... that's an indian raga sitar?!? this like some easy listening vibe out sh*t
that album traded bragadoccio for psychedelia .. and we needed some different energy that year imo

It's cause he said comparing Tribe to Big is like Stockton to MJ so I had to see how big the gap was. No worries OG just trying to obtain some knowledge through opinions this time.

Since it's on, I call my n*gga Arizona Ron
From Tucson, push the black Yukon
Usually had the slow grooves on
Mostly rock the Isley
Stupid as a youngin', chose not to move wisely
Sharper with game, him and his crooks, caught a jooks
Heard it was sweet, 'bout 350 a piece
Ron bought a truck, 2 bricks laid in the cut
His peeps got bucked, got locked the fu*k up
That's the raw vantage, came back, speakin' spanish
Lavish habits, two rings, 20 carats
Here's a criminal
n*gga made America's Most
Killed his baby's mother's brother, slit his throat
The n*gga got bagged with the toast, weeded
Took it to trial, beat it
Now he feel he undefeated
He mean it
Nothing To Lose, tattooed around his gun wounds
Everything, the game, embedded in his brain
And me I feel the same for this money and diamonds
'Specially if my daughter cryin', I ain't lyin'
Y'all know the signs
Everything to Gain*, embedded in his brain
And me I feel the same for this money ya dying* (although I'm not 100% sure on this one)
Specially if my daughter crying, I ain't lying, yall know the science*

Other than that though, you k*lled that sh*t

Ok I gotcha I'm buggin. Obviously LAD had some filler for sure such as Another, playa hater and nasty boy that arent as good as some tribe songs but if you line up song for song both albums Big k*lls it. For one his is a dbl album and also imo if you take each ones best songs off each album Big slays them. Like I said Tribe are legends. There only problem is there going up against THE LEGEND

Ok. Well to me LAD is better than any individual Tribe album but as a whole there entire discog is just too large to compare to Big since he only had 2 albums. So for quality I'm going Big but for quantity Tribe has too much to ignore. But let me just add that to me Ready to Die and LAD are both better than any Tribe album

Gotta say these are getting tough. I'm almost scared to see each new matchup because I for real can't decide on some of them. Just shows what a great era in hip hop this was. For those who didn't live it, (long sigh) I feel sorry for you brothers because it was as good as it gets. As good as you imagine it was, it was better
