A Tribe Called Quest discussed their new album & more at Webster Hall (pics)
A Tribe Called Quest returned earlier this month with their final album (and first since the ’90s) We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service (a number one album). It’s almost unbelievable how good it is, and it’s very much an album we need right now, in more than one way.
Q-Tip, Jarobi and frequent collaborators Busta Rhymes and Consequence continued to celebrate the album with a conversation at Webster Hall on Friday (11/18) (the same night Swet Shop Boys played the venue’s Studio room in the basement). Rap Radar founder Elliott Wilson was there to talk with the group (though Tribe producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad was not). Pictures of the event are in the gallery above.
The next day, the section of Linden Boulevard at 192nd St — which already had a Tribe mural painted — was officially renamed “Malik ‘Phife Dawg’ Taylor Way” after the late Tribe Called Quest member (who was fortunately able to contribute to most of the new album before his passing). Watch a video of the naming, posted by District 27 New York City Council member I. Daneek Miller, below.
UPDATE: The Webster Hall conversation will premiere on TIDAL on Tuesday:
