After 18 years, A Tribe Called Quest, finally releases a new Album . Actually, We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service is more like two albums rolled into one. The album title was credited to have been chosen by the late Phife Dawg although it’s meaning is not 100% clear, even to fellow group members but they kept it regardless. This weekend on SNL the tribe performed two of their new songs “We The People” and “The Space Program” also joining them on stage was Busta Rhymes and Consequence, who contributed their talents on the new album as well. Other artists that joined forces on the album are Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Elton John, Jack White, and Kanye West.
Dropping this album on Veteran’s Day and just 3 days after the most historical presidential election of our time was no coincidence. In fact the last song is entitled “The Donald” amidst a lion’s share of politically charged tracks that timed out perfectly for the release date. I am so glad to see ATCQ is back at it, rest in peace Phife.
