It’s the end of an era.
Taking to the main stage of England’s Bestival, A Tribe Called Quest gave their all in what was their final-ever performance. It’s been reported that ATCQ has struggled emotionally during sets at times, even canceling their Outside Lands performance due to not fully healing over the loss of Phife Dawg.
Q-Tip, Jarobi, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad were joined by Consequence at the Bestival, and if this was Tribe’s last-ever show then they went out with the largest of bangs. From their first album to their final one, every fan hung on and rapped along to every song, every word.
While Tip did announce that the Bestival performance was “gonna be our last show as A Tribe Called Quest, ever,” there still remains hope for fans; back in December 2016 Q-Tip revealed that there may be more music coming in the future.
