Twenty-six years, five albums, universal acclaim, and an undying love from a loyal fanbase culminate in one grand conclusion: A Tribe Called Quest will release their final album, We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service, on November 11.

The title reveal comes courtesy of the New York Times, who detail the group’s early days in Queens, New York, to the recent passing of Malik “Phife Dawg Taylor, and the conception of the yet-to-be-released album following their performance on The Tonight Show in 2015.

We Got It will include appearances from Elton John, Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, and Jack White, whom Tip invited to work on the album when they learned of each other’s mutual admiration. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Tribe album if Busta Rhymes didn’t feature as well, as he made contributions to three of the group’s five previous releases.

Q-Tip elaborated on the album’s production, which took place at his in-home studio in New Jersey (Phife was living in California), and spoke on Phife’s role in reassuring that their friendship was on solid ground. “I really believe he did the traveling back and forth, not for this record, but to make sure that me and him, Malik and Jon, were OK.”

As for the genesis of the title, We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service, Q-Tip gives Phife sole credit, stating, “We’re just going with it because he liked it.”
