A Tribe Called Quest - Check The Rhime (Handwritten Lyrics)

A bit of history.

I've always been interested in the process of writing back and forths. In this case it looks like Tip wrote the bits before the main verses.

The eight bar in his verse is also interesting where he made a note to sing sad and alone. I wonder if that particular line was originally an interpolation of another song.  

Good job on the quick re-write, Tip. That snot line...

I once did a podcast with Matt Fish discussing The Low End Theory. You can peep that here.
