Q-Tip Hoping To Reunite A Tribe Called Quest On His "Last Zulu" Album

The Tribe vibes may be heard on new material for the first time since "The Love Movement" on Q-Tip's upcoming forth album, "The Last Zulu."

While A Tribe Called Quest has toured and performed together on and off since 2006, the famous Queens, New York collective has not released a proper song together since 1998's The Love Movement exodus. The group currently consisting of Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi appeared last weekend at South By South in Austin, Texas. A.T.C.Q. performed at a showcase with Prince, one of the week-long festival's highest profile events.

Speaking with Billboard, emcee, producer and deejay Q-Tip hoped to reunite the group on record, for his upcoming fourth solo album, The Last Zulu. "Hopefully, Phife Dog and Ali Shaheed Muhammad will make an appearance on it, and Jarobi," Tip said. The album is currently expected in 2014, his first with Kanye West's G.O.O.D Music backing, after years with Arista, Jive and later, Universal Motown Records.

Q-Tip did say that he hopes to join deejay forces with Shaheed. "I'm gonna deejay with my partner here, hopefully, if I can coerce him, 'cause he's doing joints over there in Brooklyn and I'm doing the city, so hopefully we can collide and do some stuff."

    Why does Q Tip have a blanket over his head? Better yet, why is that dude next to him wearing camoflauge pants? Fashion sense, people.

    I love Tip but damn he's such a cannibal, always eating others personality and stuff, but hey that isn't new.. at all. Seeing those guys together is a blessing every time anyway. Jarobi is one of the coolest guy on earth.

  • Keith Sweat
