Lupe Downplays Tribe's Legacy

Lupe was widely criticized for forgetting the words to "Eclectic Relaxation" during a tribute to A Tribe Called Quest at the 2007 VH1 Hip Hop Honors. But his subsequent explanations dug the hole even deeper."[Tribe] didn't sell 10 million records, so why would people think they had a blanket on the world like that? MC Hammer was way more popular to me than A Tribe Called Quest," he says. "Those hip hop elitists who think [Tribe] hold the crown and the copyright to hip hop ... I listen to 8Ball & MJG and I think they're better than [Tribe]." (Photo: Jeff Daly/PictureGroup), (Photo: Courtesy Everett Collection)
