Is there a brand new A Tribe Called Quest album coming in 2 weeks? #ATCQ

Written by Noah Yoo — Q-Tip has announced a new album from A Tribe Called Quest. While the album does not yet have a name, it will be released November 11 and features Busta Rhymes and Consequence. It will be the group’s final album.

In a handwritten note posted to Facebook, Q-Tip explains how the group hit the studio following their first televised performance in 18 years last November. Member Phife Dawg passed away in March before the album’s completion, but Q-Tip says “he left us with the blue print of what we had to do.” Read the full note below. In August, L.A. Reid revealed that a new album from A Tribe Called Quest was in the works.

Earlier this year, Q-Tip was named the Kennedy Center’s first-ever artistic director for hip-hop culture. His collaborative album with Busta Rhymes, The Abstract and the Dragon, arrived in 2014. Phife Dawg recently had a street in Queens named after him in his honor.
