A Tribe Called Quest —Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Consequence and Jarobi White — is evidently cooking up something special. On Thursday (March 1), the group’s collective Instagram account shared a vintage photo of Tip, Ali and the late Phife Dawg.
The caption read, “Major @atcq Announcement on Monday. Stay Tuned… #TheQuestIsOn #RIPPhifeDawg #WeLoveYouTRIBE.”
HipHopDX reached out to Jarobi who said, “No spoilers like Black Panther. You know how good we are about keeping [our] secrets. It’s ill though!”
Some of Reddit’s die-hard Tribe fans are theorizing the announcement will involve the long-awaited Phife Dawg solo album, while others are anticipating a new Tribe lineup that could possibly include longtime affiliate Busta Rhymes. Others joked it could be a Outkast and ATCQ dream project.
Last year, Tribe announced the Thank You For Your Service Tour was to be its last. The weight of Phife’s 2016 passing was too much to bare, which the Hip Hop legends explained in a statement to the L.A. Times after pulling a no-show at San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival.
Tribe played its final show at the Bestival 2017 in England last July.
