Legendary: ATCQ Honors Phife & Brings The Message on SNL

Last night was legendary on so many levels. Aside from Chappelle hosting an epic episode of SNL in a while, he brought along some legendary musical guests. A day after the release of their final album, A Tribe Called Quest performed on the show. Q-Tip and Jarobi White paid homage to Phife Dawg and did him proud with their performances.

Substance lyrics over banging beats is the perfect way to describe it. We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service includes Phife Dawg on some tracks but Tip and Jarobi had to finish without him. They performed “We The People” and “The Space Program” on the show and it was an emotional set to watch. Between the untimely passing of Phife and the emotion of seeing Tribe together again, people were all in their feelings. Consequence and Busta Rhymes joined them for the final song and they ended in a group hug. Check out the performance below and be sure to cop the album here, if you haven’t already done so.
