Mark your calendars for November 11th.
Last night, a Tweet was sent out from @ATCQ showing a handwritten letter from Q-Tip. The legendary hip-hop group rarely makes announcements and it’s been a long time coming for some updates. Fans were quick to celebrate the arrival of new music coming on November 11th, but equally saddened by the news of it being the last album from A Tribe Called Quest. Read the full text below and keep it locked on The 5th for more updates regarding ATCQ.
To All The Good People Worldwide!
We hope this letter finds you & yours safe and without a scratch!
Last year this time myself, Jarobi, Ali and PHIFE had the extreme pleasure of performing on the Tonight Show. It was our 1st T.V. performance in 18 yrs.
The energy for us that night was one that we hadn’t experienced on stage together in some time!
It was also the night of the PARIS BOMBING…November 13th…Friday…A unseasonably warm night in NYC…
As we left 30 Rock I felt the need, we all did, to get back to the Studio and start that Cookup!!
SO WE GOT TO IT!!
It was coming together nicely and as you may know we lost our BROTHER, may GOD REST HIS SOUL, on March 22nd.
But he left us with the BluePrint of what we had to do.
So we collected ourselves and along tribesmen, BUSTA and CONS… we completed what will be, obviously the final A TRIBE CALLED QUEST ALBUM!
No this isnt filled with old Phife Bars…This is that Pure, unstepped on Pure!!
And on November 11th, 2016 we will complete our Paths of Rhythm… Join Us!
