Q-Tip recently took to Facebook to announce that classic Hip-Hop group A Tribe Called Quest would be releasing their final album November 11.
Rumblings of a new album from the collective began after Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid’s appearance on Rap Radar’s podcast in August.
On the show, the music mogul informed listeners that the group’s first project since 1998 was going to be unveiled soon.
The upcoming project is yet to be named, but is set to include features from frequent Tribe collaborators Busta Rhymes and Consequence.
Phife Dawg will also appear on the project even though he passed before the project’s completion.
Phife died on March 22, before the album was completed, but Q-Tip notes in the Facebook post “he left us with the blue print of what we had to do…No, this isn’t filled with old Phife bars…This is that pure, unstepped on pure!! ”
