On this day in 1996, A Tribe Called Quest released their fourth studio album Beats, Rhymes & Life. This is their most successful album to date as it was certified Platinum & topped both the Billboard's 200 Albums Chart and the R&B Albums chart. It includes the singles 1nce Again, Stressed Out as well as Jam.
On this day in 1997, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony released their third studio album The Art Of War. This album (like the previous one) sold over 4 million copies in the US & peaked at #1 on both the Billboard's Hot 200 Albums Chart & the R&B Albums Chart. It includes the singles Look Into My Eyes, Thug Luv and If I Could Teach The World.
On this day in 1992, EPMD released their 4th studio album Business Never Personal. This album (like the previous 3) was certified Gold. Sadly, this would be the last album the duo would make before they parted ways due to financial issues. The split lasted until '97 when the duo made amends & got back together. This album includes the singles Crossover & Headbanger.
