Shaheedullah and Stereotypes

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
The third and last Tribe Called Quest member to release a solo album, Ali Shaheed Muhammad not only had much to prove but also much to say compared to his former bandmates, Q-Tip and Phife Dawg. As a strictly instrumental part of Tribe mostly as a DJ, also as a producer, Muhammad never had a voice previously, and as a long-practicing Muslim, he obviously had a clear message to bring. Shaheedullah and Stereotypes balances his life as a Muslim and also an American, featuring a barrage of message tracks dealing with topics from education to race relations to love and family to spirituality, although he has guest vocalists to proclaim many of his points. Not by coincidence, all ...

All Music Guide - John Bush
The third and last Tribe Called Quest member to release a solo album, Ali Shaheed Muhammad not only had much to prove but also much to say compared to his former bandmates, Q-Tip and Phife Dawg. As a strictly instrumental part of Tribe mostly as a DJ, also as a producer, Muhammad never had a voice previously, and as a long-practicing Muslim, he obviously had a clear message to bring. Shaheedullah and Stereotypes balances his life as a Muslim and also an American, featuring a barrage of message tracks dealing with topics from education to race relations to love and family to spirituality, although he has guest vocalists to proclaim many of his points. Not by coincidence, all of them are members of his Garden Seeker production company -- Chip-Fu formerly of Fu-Schnickens, Stokley Williams of Mint Condition, Sy Smith, and Kay Jay. Muhammad's productions are understated, most of them relying on the Tribe blueprint of fuzzy keys and pointed beats, but also including several songs with a full live band. The highlights -- "Industry/Life" and "All Right Aight" featuring his own vocals, and "Put Me On" led by Williams -- are pleasant R&B jams that spring out of simple riffs and meander about for several minutes before fading out. Nobody's blaming him for having rappers several cuts below his Tribe regulars, but Shaheedullah and Stereotypes is a troublesome record. With few clear targets and few hooks to spark an audience, Muhammad never produces a track half as kinetic or catchy as A Tribe Called Quest did on a regular basis.

    Refreshing Individuality

    I am so glad that in this age of "microwave music" some artists such as Ali Shaheed, believe that there is more to music than just a catchy "hook". Each song tells a story. Each artist featured is so uniquely different from the other. Also, the live instrumentation adds a rawness of creativity to the already eclectic mood of the album. This album definately sets all the "Nay" sayers straight. Ali can (without question) hold his own.
