A Tribe Called Quest’s new album, We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service, is now available for streaming in its entirety. The album, their first in 18 years, was recorded prior to the untimely death of member Phife Dawg and is confirmed to be their last project.
The sound on the new project is that classic boom-bap sound that the ATCQ is known for, but with futuristic elements both sonically and lyrically. In addition to the presence of the late Phife Dawg, other notable collaborators include Andre 3000, Busta Rhymes and Elton John, On track in particular, “The Donald”, turned out to be almost prophetic in reference to the rise of President elect Donald Trump. “Funny thing is, we wrote a lot about Trump, about what’s going on, kind of foretelling this shit,” ATCQ member Jarobi White told Vanity Fair earlier this week. “Especially Phife … he had a crystal ball or some shit.”
Keep those DVR’s set for A Tribe Called Quest’s performance on Saturday Night Live tonight, hosted by Dave Chappelle. It’s promised to be one for the ages.
