A True Ode to Hip-Hop: A Tribe Called Quest’s releases a new album after 18 years

After 18 years, the legendary group: A Tribe Called Quest releases their final album, “We got it from here, Thank you for your service”. After the passing of member “Phife Dawg” in March of this year, I thought I’d never hear anything new from them again. The album is eclectic, soulful, and nostalgic as it reminds me of why I fell in love with Hip-Hop.

The album’s first single “We the people” discusses a lot of the issues that our current generation faces on a day to day bases. Q-Tip comes hard on the first verse as he addresses police brutality, inequalities that minority’s face, and how we live in a world that is divided. But that’s not all that this album has to offer, it’s raw, relentless and it’s what Hip-Hop has been missing.

With features ranging from: Andre 3000 to Marsha Ambrosia, I can honestly say that this album is a treat. Even if you’ve never listened to them before I would encourage you to give them a try!

You can find the Album on iTunes. Be sure to tell me what you think about it!
