A Tribe Called Quest is making their way back into the wondrous world of music.
On November 11, the group will release what will be their first album in 18 years through Epic Records. The LP is perfectly titled: “We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service.”
The group’s sixth studio will feature all four group members, including late member, Phife Dawg, who died in March 2016 after a long battle with Type 1 diabetes.
According to member Q-Tip, 19 hours before Phife’s untimely death, they were on the phone together talking about music for this very project. “Yo, make sure you send me that beat. I’ve got to put some verses to it. That beat is fire,” Tip told the New York Times about how the conversation went.
Tip said, “I had no idea that his days was numbered … I just want to celebrate him, you know?”
According to the expose published by the Times, the project will also include a slew of collaborations, including André 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Elton John, Jack White and Busta Rhymes.
No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
