Though the travels of A Tribe Called Quest may be over, the journey is far from.
Last appearing atop the Billboard 200 in 1996 with their fourth album, Beats, Rhymes, and Life, the New Tribe is looking to reclaim the top spot once again. The sixth album from the New York City-based crew, We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service is set to earn “120,000 equivalent album units,” by week’s end.
First Thoughts On We Got If From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service
We Got It From Here… marks the final album from the group, which also includes some new verses from Phife Dawg, who passed early this year due to complications with diabetes. The late emcee will be honored in his hometown of Queens, NY with a street sign on the intersection of Linden Boulevard and 192nd Street on November 19.
Q-Tip, Jarobi, and Ali Shaheed more recently appeared on Saturday Night Live, accompanied by host Dave Chappelle to perform their tracks, “We the People” and “The Space Program.”
