    Wu for all three. That doesn't take away from ATCQ. They're one of my favourite groups, but the Wu is just too powerful and too influential on the history of hip hop.

    People dont understand the early wu solo albums were damn near group projects anyway. Look at the features on liquid swordz.

    it's always hard to compare two different era's but with the wu and tribe you got better overall emcee's in the wu, they was like the justice league or x-men or some shit. tribe had better overall material when you judging from a classical perspective. plus it's almost like the wu is diminishing their legacy and after the death of odb they never could be the same.

    Tip and Phife is good, but Wu Tang is the best......Cant take shit away from Tribe, their first three albums are on par with anything that the Wu released, group or solo
    I can recall the days, juvenile crime pays
    14 years old, shorty from round way
    brick ass cold, still pump from night to day
    but why did my life have to be this way
    I rock Velour suits, flavors like mixed fruits
    my loot get recouped razors in my suit
    incase they try to troop me to the island
    I known to start whylin back in New York, my soldiers got the cash pilin
    peep this on some nose and teef shit
    so much drama, who the fuck knows who we got beef wit

    Better overall hip hop group: A Tribe Called Quest; fusing jazz & hip hop & with radio play

    Bigger impact: Wu Tang Clan; You know damn well you see more of the Wu-Tang symbol in one day

    t88zl2.gif more than you'll ever see the A Tribe Called Quests symbol

    Look familiar? Didnt think so.

    Better Discography: A Tribe Called Quest- Hands Down
    1. Nas
    2. Common
    3. Scarface
    4. Q-Tip
    5. 2Pac

    "I was told a long time ago, ghosts and spirits don't like the fumes from ether, and I just wanted to affect him with my weapon and get to his soul."

    I feel it's the only way. I don't feel a need to play the whole part in the entire movement. But, yo, if you just raise your family right, if I just live righteously, I be all right. Yo, my whole life is dedicated to change.

    Is Tribe considered a group because of in house production?
    Q-Tip carried that group on the mic .... Phife was the weakest link who would have a hard time on the mic trying to handle Spliff Star.
    Putting them up against Wu ...... T/S don't have the answers ......

    Wu-Tang holds it down.

    Plus, Wu-Tang is for the children. Too bad these crack babies ain't listening. I blame Soulja Boy.

    Wu is the G.O.A.T Group ... Solo... whatever. Protect ya neck!

    I used to love A Tribe Called Quest when they were out. Midnight Marauders and Enter the Wu:36 Chambers came out on the same day in Nov 1993. Both classics.

    I'd say A Tribe called Quest has better beats but Wu Tang are better MCs.

    I can't say Wu is better then Tribe as a group. However, I prefer Wu and I think they are better MC's. I do think that Musically Q-Tip and Tribe's sound has been just as influential in Hip Hop Music as RZA and the Wu's sound.

    Excellent question. I can respect either decision you decide on this one.. i love and appreciate both..but,the Wu gets my vote. C.R.E.A.M video changed my life..gritty New York in its glory.. Ghostface All That I Got Is You is a masterpiece to me.. ODB You Don't Wanna Fuck Wit Me is off key, aggresive outburst goodness.. and Verbal Intercourse is one of the greatest songs ever made..but the same can be argued about ATCQ and their catalog..but Wu had a greater impact on me..so..The Wu is my choice. Salute both legendary groups
