A Tribe Called Quest is going out with a bang. Just a day after releasing their sixth and final album, We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service, the legendary group lit up the Saturday Night Live stage for one last set.
Introduced by host and dear friend of the group Dave Chappelle, remaining members Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi White put on a politically charged performance of “We the People…” and “The Space Program”, which perfectly fit in with the election-themed show. Late member Phife Dawg, who unexpectedly passed away months before the album’s release, was celebrated in grandest way possible. The group let Phife’s verses play through while a Basquiat-style drawing of him hung in the background.
Watch the powerful performance of “We The People…” below:
