Even the greatest things have to come to an end at some point. Q-Tip revealed on Twitter that A Tribe Called Quest‘s final two shows will be openers on the Yeezus tour this November.

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.
