In case you haven’t heard by now, the latest and final album from A Tribe Called Quest is set to be released on Friday, November 11th. The record is called “We Got It From Here, Thank You For Your Service” and features Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Elton John, Jack White, and Busta Rhymes.
On October 27th, Q-Tip made a surprise announcement about the album via Facebook, sending the world into a frenzy.
If that wasn’t enough good news, NBC also recently announced that ATCQ will be making their debut on Saturday Night Live a day after the album’s release on November 12th, hosted by Dave Chapelle.
As a lifelong Tribe fan, the anticipation is killing me. So many questions waiting to be answered from this album. I wonder who’s handling the bulk of the production?
Will J Dilla have a beat? The theme for the album? How Kendrick Lamar sounds over a Q-Tip beat? If I had longer hair I’d be pulling it out right now.
So to hold me over till the album drops, I’ve made this video mix of classic ATCQ hits. I’m sure seeing a lot of these videos will bring back great memories for a lot of you.
Although I’m sad that this is the final album, at least we get one last hoorah to enjoy, and really appreciate in my opinion, the greatest Hip Hop group of all time. Rest in peace Phife!
