Dave Chappelle & A Tribe Called Quest Will Kick It On SNL
One week from today (November 11), A Tribe Called Quest will release its sixth and final album We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service. While Phife Dawg died more than six months prior to its release, the surviving founding three members of the group aim to make the Epic Records release a major musical milestone.
Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi White will appear as the musical guests on November 12’s episode of SNL. Moreover, the Queens, New York collective will be joined by the special host for the night, Dave Chappelle. According to Variety, this will be the superstar comedian’s first time hosting the NBC 40-year sketch comedy mainstay.
We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service features appearances by Busta Rhymes, Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar and others. Yesterday (November 3), A.T.C.Q. released the LP artwork.
Chappelle, an avid fan of Tribe, had appeared with the group during their 2015 reunion run for the 25th anniversary of People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm (25th Anniversary Edition). Furthermore, Q-Tip was a guest on the early 2000s Chapelle’s Show sketch show.
This is Tribe’s first album in 18 years.
