Lake George Mirror Magazine: A Tribe Called Quest Member to Release First Solo Album on Glens Falls’ Sub-Bombin Records

Glens Falls-based Sub-Bombin Records has announced the release of hip-hop legend Jarobi’s first solo album in the first half of 2014.

Hip-hop heads know Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi White are the John, Paul, George, and Ringo of the genre. Like rock and roll in the fifties, hip-hop in the eighties was a burgeoning scene of kids with eardrums attuned to rhythms of the street. Like the mop-tops from Liverpool, four childhood friends from Queens would channel a breadth of cultures and musical styles to redefine and transcend the form as A Tribe Called Quest.

“They completely mastered the form and culture of what hip-hop was supposed to be,” said legendary Atlanta emcee Ludacris in the 2011 documentary, Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest.

“Nothing was touching Tribe. Nothing,” said mega-producer Pharrell Williams in the Tribe documentary.

On a local lean this Monday, my soundtrack this afternoon comes by way of area labels Pig Food Recordsand Sub-Bombin.

Both labels have yet to disappoint me with any release they’ve shared with me thus far and are consistently churning out top-tier quality music from some of the area’s most talented hip hop and electronic artists. Both collectives are working to help put Albany on the map and their hard work shows and doesn’t go unappreciated.

First up, is a new music video for the single, “Scissors,” from Benn Grim. The track was produced by Metalheart and Chip Crane directed the video.
