As a group, A Tribe Called Quest performed their last hurrah as an opening act for Kanye West, yet they did reform to perform on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to celebrate the 25th anniversary of People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. The amount of love, honor and respect from those within the hip-hop community is flooding social media.
Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Q-Tip and Jarobi, the remaining members of ATCQ, have yet to make a statement of their bandmate’s passing, but we will update with word if and when they do. Please feel to remember his life through music and the condolences of his peers on the following pages.
We here at Okayplayer offer our sincerest condolences, prayers and tears to the family and friends of Malik Isaac Taylor.
I like ink and alcohol.... and I listen to music every now and then.
