This marks the trio’s (quartet including Jarobi) second retirement after breaking up following ‘The Love Movement’ in 1998. A Tribe Called Quest reunited in 2004 for the Rock The Bells Tour but hasn’t released any new material since. Michael Rapaport’s ‘Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest’ documentary on the group detailed tensions between Phife Dawg and Q-Tip as well.
A Tribe Called Quest is considered one of the greatest groups in hip-hop history. ‘The Low End Theory’ and ‘Electric Relaxation’ — the trio’s second and third albums — are considered cultural landmarks.
Q-Tip will be working on his fourth solo album, ‘The Last Zulu.’ it’s due sometime next year.
A Tribe Called Quest will alternate with Kendrick Lamar as Kanye West’s openers during the Yeezus tour’s New York stops. A Tribe Called Quest will perform at Barclay’s Center on Nov. 19 and Madison Square Garden on Nov. 24.
