Love Movement Intro - A Tribe Called Quest (featuring Mos Def)






Background Info (as told by Questlove):

yeah man.
friggin tip.
day of mastering he took it off.
i
was
mad
as
HELL!

matter of fact he made ALOT of last minute off the cuff mastering choices that day.

-begged him to use the louder horns on "let's start" cause the OG version he wanted you couldn't even hear them joints to know that was the rhythm pattern he was following. the 808 was killing all the music.

-told him to fix the timing on "find a way" coming in from let's start so it had a similar relationship to the ending of "steve biko" to "award tour"---never got the timing right.

-i love abstract crazy sounding dilla like the next man. but the OG version of "against the world" coulda borderline a single.

but this intro yo.


man i was MAD MAD MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!

More proof that rappers don't know what they're doing.

Speaking of unreleased ATCQ, did you hear Georgie Porgie AKA the incredibly homophobic demo of Show Business which included all of classic line-up Brand Nu'?

Ha...yeah, that Georgie song was so full of hate, it's laughable.

Other people have said that The Love Movement sounded a lot better before Tip got all control freaky wid it.

Hopefully someone still has the pre-mastered version, and leaks it on the net.

No doubt. I'd love to hear that o.g version of Against The World.
