A Tribe Called Quest gets ZERO Grammy nominations for We Got It from Here…Thank You 4 Your Service (2018)
It takes a lot for an iconic hip hop group to break up, go solo, be on leave, squash beef, get back together and then drop one of the most timely rap albums of 2016. Tribe‘s last album before We Got It from Here was The Love Movement in 1998 and 18 years later they were still dropping fire…and their politically charged gem came just in time for the long years of Trump we were about to endure.
But naw, the Grammys didn’t care. They did have Tribe shimmy and shake in a powerful 2017 Grammy performance though. But zero nominations.
To this day, Tribe has yet to win a Grammy.
