Ali Shaheed Muhammad Says There Are "No Plans" For A Tribe Called Quest Reunion

A Tribe Called Quest's Ali Shaheed Muhammad weighs in on a potential reunion album.

Fans of A Tribe Called Quest will have to keep holding their breath for a reunion record.

During an interview with Montreality, Ali Shaheed Muhammad said that the group hasn't discussed collaborating on another LP, even though the reaction to the documentary Beats, Rhymes & Life has conveyed that there is interest in a reunion album.

"We talk about it, especially with the documentary," he said. "I think it stirred up conversations - not within the group, but just with the fans really wanting to see another record. But we haven't talked about, so no plans.

In a previous interview with Montreality, Phife Dawg echoed the same sentiment, stating that the group is "really far away" from collaborating on another record. "As far as Tribe, we're really, really far away from doing a joint effort right now," he said. "But basically, I'd love to do it for the fans' sake because that's really what it's all about. So keep your fingers crossed, you never know."

As far back as 2008, Q-Tip insisted that a reunion would never happen. "It will never, ever happen. We don't want to be one of those groups that comes back 15 years later and puts out an album that's not that good. It's why the Beatles never got back together," he said.

    We have gotten 5 albums of classic music, that's enough. Tip is right dont just put out something thats not of quality. ATCQ is already in the Hall of Fame of HIP HOP even if they dont make any more music.

    "An atcq reunion if it's announced by Q tip and not the other 3 guys (I count Jairobi), people will support it" But clearly Q Tip doesn't give a shit and has already said that won't happen. You sound so fucking pathetic with these what if's.

    if they are even close to thinking about hooking back up they got to put out a couple of singles and see how the masses eat them up to think about putting a whole album together, I love tribe but I don't want them to hurt there track record, it was pretty good put out 3 classics back to back to back and then 2 albums that were pretty good, actually I really liked love movement.

    This is probably for the best, don't get me wrong I would LOVE to see ATCQ reunion but would you really want them to back come together and drop a medicore album? Some things are just better left alone.

    How is Q Tip a diva for simply not having anymore interest in making music with these guys? I'm sure if there was high demand and the money was right, they would, but let's face it. There isn't. Move on.

      Speak for yourself that's not a fact. An atcq reunion if it's announced by Q tip and not the other 3 guys (I count Jairobi), people will support it. It's not likely tho because they ain't hurting for anything or have anything else to prove.
