So I am just curious as to why people like ATCQ, The Pharcyde, Delasoul and Qtip as a solo artist.  What is it about these groups that people like.

The samples/beats, imo, are the biggest reasons. Jazz influenced funky beats have a laid back vibe to them that is fun to chill and relax to. It's one of the only sub-genres of rap that works just as good as background music (for studying, kicking it, soundtracks, etc) as it does for active listening. Just like Jazz in a way.

You sort of grouped them all together as if they all make the exact same music so it's hard to respond generally. De La Soul was really, really satirical and ironic with their first two albums. People liked it because you got a lot of light hearted laughs through the albums with the skits, self depreciation, and humor. The same with the Pharcyde, more or less, though I think they touched on more grounded topics most of the time. The Tribe was more laid back than all of them which made them more commercially friendly than the others, imo. Q-Tip had a voice that wasn't exaggerated or cartoony which I think helped them sound more smooth than Pharcyde or De La Soul.

In general though, I'd say.

1. Eccentric and varied samples
2. Colorful personalities
3. Laid back vibe and minimalistic instruments/beats
4. Doesn't take itself so seriously, unlike more hardcore subgenres of rap
5. Topics that aren't generic.
6. Afrocentrism and poetry.

They like it because it makes them feel good, as music should.

My personal fav is Digable Planets. Butterfly has such a fun mind to listen to.
