Grammy award winning superstar Lauryn Hill is set to perform a few select East Coast dates including shows at the Bowery Ballroom and 9:30 Club. It’s hard to believe that her critically acclaimed album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, was released over 15 years ago. Back then she was deemed the future of music by critics and fans alike. But then she dissapeared from the public eye to become a mother and activist. She also ran into some legal issues including a three-month prison sentence for tax evasion.

Before Lauryn Hill became a member of the Fugees and one of the most popular female artists in the world, she was a middle class teenager in New Jersey with a beautiful voice, big dreams and tough demeanor. But it wasn’t love at first sight. Check out video footage from 1988 of a 13-year-old Hill performing the Smokey Robinson classic, “Who’s Lovin’ You,” in “Amateur Night at the Apollo.” It didn’t go as well as you would expect.

“Before debuting in Sister Act 2, a clearly nervous L Boogie tried to win over the Harlem crowd with her rendition of Smokey Robinson’s ‘Who’s Lovin’ You.’ At first, she stood too far away from the microphone, and her wobbly delivery drew an immediate chorus of boos from the audience. But after picking up the mic, she loosened up a bit and eventually won over the crowd. It still wasn’t enough, as she still went home a loser that night.” – Complex Music

Hip-hop legends Q-TipPhife Dawg and Ali Shaheed Muhammad have joined forces yet again to perform two opening dates for Kanye’s Yeezus tour Wednesday, Novemeber 20th and Sunday, November 24th. The original Tribe claim that this will be their final performance as a group, but lets hope that’s just an exaggeration since they have reunited several times in the past.

To prepare ourselves for what should be an epic performance this Sunday, here’s a look at the Tribe performing for Showtime at the Apollo all the way back in 1990. Showtime at the Apollo was one of the first television shows to feature live performances from talented, up and coming or established hip hop, R&b and soul acts. These acts included Run-D.M.C., The Notorious B.I.G. and Mary J. Blige just to name a few. For A Tribe Called Quest their appearance on Showtime came early in their career, with the Tribe performing their infectious single “Can I Kick It?” off their first album, People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm.

——

“Years before Jay Z asked the Mad Wednesdays crowd if he could kick it on “22 Two’s,” A Tribe Called Quest rocked the Apollo with their “Can I Kick It?” single, which asked the same question. Q-Tip and Phife Dawg (who sported an Orlando Magic snapback and Champion hoodie) had the people on their feet, spitting their Linden Boulevard styles, and killing it with the call and response chorus. This is how you rock a crowd, young blood.” – NAHRIGHT

After 30 years creating some of the most influential and innovative “rock” sounds with Sonic Youth (and inspiring me to launch SuperGlued a few years ago), Lee Ranaldo formed a new band in 2012 with longtime friends and collaborators Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth drummer), Alan Licht and Tim Lüntzel. Their latest album, The Last Night on Earth, is full of heartfelt stories about people and moments from the past. The songs are influenced by some of Lee’s favorite artists growing up including the Byrds, Neil Young and the Grateful Dead.

Lee sat down with SuperGlued to discuss the setlist — how he decides the order of songs to play, his favorite moments, how the process differs from Sonic Youth, what role the crowd plays, etc. Watch the video interview above and check out the band live on their current tour.
