A Tribe Called Quest Plays 'Last Show' Ever at UK's Bestival

A Tribe Called Quest Plays 'Last Show' Ever at UK's Bestival”

He then recited Phife Dawg's lines on the song "Say am I "posed to be dead or doin" life in prison?/Just another dummy caught up in the system/Unruly hooligan who belongs in Spofford (juvenile prison)/Verse getting that degree at Stanford or Harvard".

The tribute came amid a powerful show which featured solo spots from Q-Tip, Consequence and Jarobi and climaxed with multiple runs through 'We The People...', with all three members out at the crowd barrier chanting the iconic chorus.

Although Q-Tip has teased the possibility of another "incarnation" of A Tribe Called Quest, it's hard to imagine how the group could go on without Phife Dawg.

It was a sad moment for hip hop fans everywhere as A Tribe Called Quest played their last ever show at Bestival in the United Kingdom, more than a year after the death of their brother and collaborator Phife Dawg. During last night's show, Q-Tip told the crowd [via NME], "A Tribe Called Quest, we suffered a blow". It was a technique they returned to on "Find A Way", taking the track from a frenetic rap backed by visuals of chains and prison bars down to an nearly hymn-like acapella closing. It wasn't all doom and gloom for fans, who chanted "we love A Tribe Called Quest's music" back to the trio after they made the announcement that they would be playing their last show that night. During their encore, the hip-hop collective played their most famous hit Can I Kick It?, which they played in front of a screen showing video footage of their younger selves. He added, "We'll probably do a world tour".
