|Known for||Founding member of A Tribe Called Quest|
One of the four founding members of the iconic group A Tribe Called Quest, he is a hip hop artist and chef. He was only featured on one album: People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. He was mostly a contributor of song ideas. He was also a part of the Native Tongues rap group.
He often had to cook for himself because his parents were primarily absent during his upbringing. This sparked his interest in cuisine, and when he was fourteen, he lied about his age to acquire a job in a restaurant.
In 2015, he founded Eats, Rhymes, and Life, a play on A Tribe Called Quest's fourth album, Beats, Rhymes, and Life.
Art Wayne, his grandson, is frequently featured on his Instagram account.
