Now if my partners don't look good, Malik won't look good
If Malik don't look good, then Quest won't look good
When Q-Tip and Shaheed preform like stars, Phife’s reputation goes up. Similarly, when the show is not hot, Malik seems worse. The Tribe acts as a unit, so the success of one is the success of all.
