Earlier this month, A Tribe Called Quest proved they were still a formidable name in hip-hop when the Queens rap crew scored a No.1 album with We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service. Helping bolster their comeback was the release of their politically charged single "We the People" on the Friday after Election Day, when Republican candidate Donald Trump walked away victorious against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Though the album was lauded for its conscious and political message, one of its guest features, Kanye West, was criticized for voicing his theoretical support for Trump at a show several weeks ago. In a recent interview with Bloomberg Politics, the Tribe's Q-Tip explained how disheartened he was to hear West's Trump comments.
"It's difficult because he's my brother," Q-Tip said during the interview. "I reached out to him, and I'm hoping we just get to talk. And I'll probably just leave it there. I really care about that dude but his remarks are something that require he and I having a real serious discussion."
