A Tribe Called Quest dropped “Oh My God” in 1994, featuring it as the third track from their “Midnight Marauders” album, and the track & its music video was an instant hit.
Alternative hip hop from the nineties doesn’t get better than this classic track from A Tribe Called Quest. “Oh My God” has a flow that you’ve just got to bounce to with music video featuring Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, and Busta Rhymes. What a hit.
“Oh My God” samples “Who’s Gonna Take the Weight” by Kool & the Gang, and brings Busta Rymes in on the rap for collaboration in the video and on the chorus.
A Tribe Called Quest delivered over ten years worth of pioneering rap spitting rhymes with meaning all around the world while showing off their alternative hip hop style for all to be influenced by. Now that’s pioneering rap.
