It’s here. A Tribe Called Quest‘s new album, their last, We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service is now out. Earlier today we got hip to a new video brought to us by CBS where Q-Tip gave a tour of his home studio, the same studio where the new Tribe album was made. The videos also feature Tip’s extensive vinyl collection. If you want a peak into where the magic was created, head here.
If you haven’t heard, or forgot already, Dave Chappelle and A Tribe Called Quest will be appearing on Saturday Night Live, this weekend. Watch a short teaser for the episode here. We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service features appearances from Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Talib Kweli, Anderson .Paak, Jack White, Elton John, and others.
The idea for the new Tribe album formed after the group’s historic return to television on the Tonight Show, their first television performance in over a decade, as detailed in a note posted by Q-Tip on Facebook. Phife Dawg passed away last March, but not before relaying the “blueprint” for the new album. Head here to read an illuminating article by Toure in the New York Times about Tribe and their new album. Scroll down to purchase (definitely grab that vinyl) and stream A Tribe Called Quest’s We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service via Apple Music or Spotify.
