A Tribe Called Quest

Tribe's first three albums—1990's People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, 1992's Low End Theory, and 1994's Midnight Marauders—are one of the most breathtaking and influential string of rap albums ever, with a breezy, abstract sound that can still be heard today in the music of Lupe Fiasco, the Neptunes and Kanye West. (And no, Jarobi doesn't count.)
