A Tribe Called Quest playing SNL, hosted by Dave Chappelle
In very exciting news, A Tribe Called Quest have been announced as the musical guests on the November 12 episode of Saturday Night Live to be hosted by Dave Chappelle.
SNL has been on something of a roll during election season, and this is likely to be yet another strong episode that will be appointment viewing for a lot of people (particularly given that it'll be the first episode after the election results are in).
ATCQ recently announced their final album We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service. That's due on November 11, the day before the SNL gig. It was also recently announced that the album will feature contributions from Jack White, Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Elton John along with old pals Consequence and Busta Rhymes. Most of the album was recorded before Phife's death. "No this isn’t filled with old Phife Bars…This is that Pure, unstepped on Pure!!," says Q-Tip.
This Saturday's (11/5) SNL episode will have musical guest Solange.
