"Stressed Out" is the second single from A Tribe Called Quest's fourth album Beats, Rhymes and Life. The song featured Faith Evans on the chorus and production by The Ummah.

Music video[edit]

The video begins with the group in a red room. The next scene is at a dice game that Consequence and Q-Tip are involved in. Two men at the game start a fight and as a car shows up, everyone flees. During the chorus, Faith Evans is in blue, red, and black rooms. A dishwasher at a restaurant is shown, stressed out at work. Also, a man with money problems is shown struggling to pay bills and provide for his family. Then, the dishwasher knocks down all of the dishes and leaves work. When Faith Evans says "we gon' make it", the man with money problems and his family throw a birthday party.


The group performed the song on Moesha, in the episode titled "A Concerted Effort: Part 1", which aired on November 5, 1996.
