Here’s the official music video for the dopeness ATCQ rocked SNL with last weekend; posted the Lyric Video and album link earlier on here. “We The People…” believe in our hearts that the Tribe will reign forever. Thus, real Hip-Hop will never die!
(And when Q-Tip spins to look at the empty spot at the mic near the end. Damn. Rest In Peace Phife. We miss you Dawg.)
Okay, it would have been nice to get some dope backstage looks before the big ATCQ Saturday Night Live performance tonight. But we don’t have that. Oprah’s ol’ bestie Gayle got some other true behind-the-scenes stuff for us to watch while we wait though.
As A Tribe Called Quest releases “We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service,” its final album after an 18-year break, Gayle King gets a tour of Q-Tip’s home studio in New Jersey.
ALERT: We have a Statik Selektah sighting. Stat Diddy is in the building! Plus, there’s more of the Gayle–Tip tour after the jump.
It is what it is… what it says. Just figured you might like a FREE listen to what you’ll be gettin’ if you choose to cop that latest ATCQ plate. You’re welcome!
Gayle King Gets Stops By Q-Tip’s Home To Get The 4-1-1 On “…Thank You 4 Your Service” And More (Video)
Looking back always provides more insight. Watch as Q-Tip bears that truth out yet again. He tells Gayle King all about the coming up of A Tribe Called Quest, a lifelong friendship with Phife Dawg and much more. Jammed into such a short clip. Got the album that just dropped, and they have a live performance on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. It’s an ATCQ weekend!!
Oh hell yeah we are ready for A Tribe Called Quest to take the Saturday Night Live stage tonight! Dave Chappelle is hosting, too?? Maaaannnn! If you are not there yet with the proper level of hypeness at the coming dopeness, listen up to what ATCQ put down in this “We The People…” jawn. Off the latest album “We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service.”
So good to hear Phife Dawg get down one more time #SpeakLifeToPhife
Tis the season for beautiful tributes for A Tribe Called Quest. Did you see the earlier post on that dope mural; painted on the same building atop which ATCQ rocked “Check The Rhime” in their video back in the day? Well, now we have a 25th Anniversary Mix by Chris Read titled “Low End Theory.”
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of A Tribe Called Quest’s stellar sophomore LP ‘Low End Theory’ our buddy Chris Read has crafted an exclusive mix of tracks from the album, alternate versions, and original sample material. Listen up and enjoy!

These are Hip-Hop hieroglyphics. Respect to Greg Poole. Been hearing good things about this happening, but this vid puts it in perspective. Back in the day… to now… on the Boulevard of Linden. A Tribe Called Quest. RIP Phife.
25 years after the release of their classic LP “Low End Theory,” watch as a mural honoring A Tribe Called Quest goes up at the site of their iconic 1991 video for “Check The Rhime.”
Man #SpeakLifeToPhife whenever you get a chance. And this Muppetized “Scenario” visual gives us one more chance to do so. Click play and let it happen. Get damn AMPED when you see/hear the Dawg set that joint off. First up to bat forever!
(Keep it hood. Sesame Street stand up!)
This close… thiiiiis close to calling this a ‘mashtape’ – as in a mashup of ATCQ and Outkast tracks. Whatever it’s called, this Nappy DJ Needles mix definitely has something to say. If it were up to us, it’d say #SpeakLifeToPhife
A timely tribute to two of Hip-Hop’s greatest families – Dayglow meets Dungeon. Too bad that actual Tribe and Outkast project Andre 3K spoke of at Phife’s farewell ceremony never came to be. But heads do have this. Enjoy.
The family of Malik “Phife” Taylor have decided to see his wishes through; releasing music that he had been recording for his new album, “Give Thanks.”
Phife loved his fans, and was so excited for them to hear his new music. I feel like he would have wanted it this way.

Deisha, along with Phife’s longtime friend and manager, Dion Liverpool, are leading with this J Dilla produced single, “Nutshell.”
Ah yes. See The one them call Wiz over there doing it already! Very nice revisitation of some classic work put in by Phife Dawg. FREE download available now: An “Electric Relaxation” redux for you, you and you #SpeakLifeToPhife
I heart evitaN! There, I said it. Once you run this one, you will say it, too. Dres & Jarobi with another heater, here in visual form, taking us “Higher.” I mean, Dres set this off with “I’m a Black Sheep, like Jesus.” Come onnnn. DOPE lyrics matter, son! And you KNOW it.
The hard hitting single by the Native Tongue brothers Black Sheep Dres and Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest.
Wait… ATCQ… ALL of them? Damn right this goes up on the site! “Can I Kick It” without the question mark; no question. Just Questlove and The Roots backing up the brothers reunited to do one of their seminal hits for Jimmy Fallon’s live audience. Dope!
You can get the 25th Anniversary Edition of “People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm” now via the link below, too.
Whaaaaat???!! J. Cole jumped on the ATCQ classic “Can I Kick It?” Well… yeah, but not like that. Cole remixed the single for 25th Anniversary remaster of “People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm” due out November 20, 2015. Click above and enjoy the J. Cole remix.
The 25th Anniversary version of ATCQ’s “People’s Instinctive Travels & The Paths Of Rhythm” will include the original tracks (remastered) AND a gang of new remixes from the likes of Pharrell Williams (which we posted) and CeeLo Green. Here’s CeeLo’s contribution, a remix to “Footprints.”
A Tribe Called Quest is doing a redux of their debut album “People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm.” Cool. Now, what we have is a Neptune‘d up version of “Bonita Applebum” (remixed by Pharrell Williams). Nice inclusion on the 25th Anniversary Edition of the classic by ATCQ.
Oh yeah, it’s noontime. Ummm… tell ya what… let’s link y’all back to the post with the incredibly sexy Stephanie Santiago as ‘Bonita Applebum’ During A Tribe Called Quest’s New York Performance.
Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest and EvitaN. He’s a real life chef talks with a catering company “Eats Rhymes & Life” (yeah, like flipping the ATCQ documentary). Enjoy this clip of him talking up his “Tribe Taco Tuesdays” and other ideas. Great stuff!
Got a friend that might need to sample that falafel taco though bruddah. For real!
