Beats, Rhymes, and Life…20 Years Later

1996 was an incredible year for hip hop. On July 30, 1996, A Tribe Called Quest released Beats, Rhymes and Life. It was the 4th album from the legendary hip hop trio. This album was lauded by critics and despised by many of Tribe’s faithful fans. It was a commercial success for the group…but that success came a cost.

Listen to The 12kyle Podcast as I break down the album and tell you how it ranks with the other albums that came out in 1996.

Stakes Is High…20 Years Later

1996 was an incredible year for hip hop. On July 2, 1996, De La Soul dropped Stakes Is High. It was the 4th album from the trio from Long Island. This album was critically acclaimed for its production and lyricism. It served as a message to the decline that rap music began to face in the mid 90s.The album also had guest features from Zhane, Common and Mos Def

On The 12kyle Podcast, I will discuss the importance and relevance of this album. Dave, Posdnous, and Maseo delivered a gem for 1996. Listen and give us your thoughts
