Q-Tip took to Twitter yesterday to announce the official release date for A Tribe Called Quest’s final album.
In August, L.A. Reid confirmed the rumors that a reunion album for A Tribe Called Quest was indeed coming together. Fans can now stop holding their breath as the anticipated project will be officially arriving on November 11th. This not only coincides with Remembrance Day, but also the infamous Paris Attacks that took place on November 13th 2015.
According to the written message tweeted by ATCQ, this album was inspired by the Paris attacks, and the groups performance on The Tonight Show, which was their first in eighteen years. The message also makes sure to shut down any worries this project might just be a compilation of old bars (see below).
“we completed what will be, obviously the final A Tribe Called Quest Album! No this isn’t filled with old Phife bars… this is that Pure, unstepped on Pure!!”
It appears the project was finished before the unfortunate and untimely death of Phife Dawg in March of this year. This news is obviously bitter-sweet for fans, as its rare any final project by a group is finished before the death of a group member, however for many the wounds of Phife’s departure are still very much open. Look for the project to arrive on November 11th.
