A Tribe Called Quest Returns Just In Time To Spread Good Vibes With New Album
Phife Dawg's legacy continues to shine on.
Despite the political turmoil that many Americans and global citizens are currently experiencing, A Tribe Called Quest returned to the music scene to ease your mental worries.
The Queens collective debuted their sixth studio album, We Got It From Here... Thank You 4 Your Service (Nov. 11), which follows their previous 1998 soundscape, The Love Movement. Their current project features lyrical talent from some of hip-hop's brightest including Kendrick Lamar, Busta Rhymes, Andre 3000, and Anderson .Paak.
The album also serves as a fitting tribute to ATCQ's fallen member, Malik "Phife Dawg" Taylor, who passed away on Mar. 22, 2016 from diabetic complications. The Trinidadian-American was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 26 years ago.
In a feature with the New York Times, Q-Tip shared that he's still coping with the loss of one of the group's pivotal figures. "I'm gonna be missing him for a while," he said. "God is in control. And I feel at peace. I feel hopeful. I feel Phife with me."
