A Tribe Called Quest have shared their new album 'We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service'.
The record - billed as their last - was constructed from instructions given by the late Phife Dawg, and includes contributions from all four members.
Out now, 'We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service' is streaming online - tune in below.
One person has already fallen under the record's spell - Questlove is a fan, and has offered up a review on his Instagram feed.
Check it out below.
All imma say is Yes. Yes. Yes. I didn't wanna do the privilege stuntin brag move. w/o spoiler alerting I'll just say 3 things: 1) I miss the group esthetic in hip hop especially in mc'n---like this ain't a "ok this my 16, then hook then your 16, then let's do his 16"----nah this some Run DMC/Beastie Boys/Furious 5 collaborative tug-of-war-rhyming (just putting it out there: if #Andre3000 joined @ATCQ this would be the best most welcome move in music prolly since JG joined NE or maybe Edwards came to the Temptations) 2) the last time I was so pleasantly surprised at someone's hidden skill performance was when @djmaseo came out of nowhere kickin ass and takin names on #DeLaSoulIsDead---but man all I'm left wonderin was what if @jarobiwhite had barz on the OTHER tribe records! Which leads to my last point: 3) this is an excellent high note to end on but this is only telling me that the gas in #ATCQ'S tank is NOWHERE near empty. Like this album is it's own lane: it fulfills and itches so many scratches I've been jonzin for: tempos I love (95-100 bpms) the random scattered bomb squad production tactics of classic albums like #AmerikkkasMostWanted & #FearOfABlackPlanet (16 songs running through you like bullets at the speed of sound, a bowl of stew made by @chefludo and his zany chefs at @troismecla all in tune with each other knowing the RIGHT amount of spices to throw in)--I mean it's feels vintage in its musicality but is such a 2016 record. And it's timing could really really truly couldn't be like---better because it's topical. This is so needed right now. Come midnight tonight you will be HAPPY AS HELL. Matter of fact? (Forgot it's Thursday) tonight at #BowlTrain I'm spinning ALL TRIBE! why? I wanna hear #ThankYouForYourService on loud ass speakers! See y'all tonight after @talibkweli's @brooklynbowl concert. It's gonna be an amazing night of hip hop I'll tell you that much.
