A new Tribe Called Quest album is officially due out Nov. 11 via Epic Records. The iconic New York City hip-hop group's sixth album, its first since 1998's The Love Movement and first new release since founding member Phife Dawg's death March 22, will be followed by a performance on Saturday Night Live on Nov. 12, according to sources.
Q-Tip posted a hand-written announcement with the news to Facebook on Thursday (Oct. 27). In it, he said that this will be the final Tribe Called Quest album and will feature Busta Rhymes and Consequence, as well as recordings of Phife Dawg tracked before his death.
