The members of hip-hop supergroup A Tribe Called Quest have reunited for their first joint interview since 1998 to mark the 20th anniversary of their landmark second album “The Low End Theory”.

Bandmates Kamaal ‘Q-Tip’ Ibn John Fareed, Malik ‘Phife Dawg’ Taylor, Ali Shaheed Muhammed and Jarobi White put aside their well-publicized issues and staged a recent summit as part of an upcoming VH1 special on the album, which many consider among the most important releases of the hip-hop genre.

“The Low End Theory”, released in 1991, featured on Time magazine’s All-Time 100 Albums List and was named the 154th greatest album of all-time by Rolling Stone editors.

The get together comes months after the band’s successes and infighting was chronicled in actor/director Michael Rapaport’s award-winning documentary “Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest”.

But time has not healed all the old wounds. According to an unnamed source, Q-Tip remains livid over his portrayal in Michael Rapaport’s documentary about the group.

Q-Tip was the only member of Tribe not to endorse the documentary when it was released earlier this summer because, the source says, he feels the movie portrays him as “a pompous bastard.”
