He joined the group in the late 1980s as a part-time member. Although he did not rhyme on the albums, he came up with ideas for songs like "I Left My Wallet In El Segundo," which became a single off the group's first album. He also contributed to versions of the songs "Push It Along," "Youthful Expression," and "Can I Kick It?" He also appeared in five of the 13 music videos the group filmed. He left the group in 1991 to attend culinary school. He continues to produce songs with former bandmates Phife Dawg and DJ Rasta Root.
He was honored along with the rest of A Tribe Called Quest in VH1's fourth annual Hip Hop Honors ceremony. In August 2010, Jarobi joined the other three members of A Tribe Called Quest on stage for the Rock the Bells concert festival.
