Twenty years and three months after A Tribe Called Quest last topped the Billboard 200 with Beats, Rhymes And Life, the legendary group returned with their final and chart-topping album We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service. The group, Q-Tip, Jarobi White and DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad recently lost their bandmate MC Phife Dawg on March 2016 due to diabetes complication. Their first reunited on The Tonight Show on Nov. 2015 prior to their 25th anniversary. They once again back for the first time as the musical guests on November last year’s Dave Chappelle-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live. They performed two songs, “We The People…” and “The Space Program,” from their new (and final) album We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service, joined by Consequence and Busta Rhymes. A banner of the late Phife Dawg was lowered to the stage while a recording of his verse on “We The People…” played. Watch below.
