      Onstage at Bestival on Saturday night, Q-Tip stopped mid-performance to confirm hints that A Tribe Called Quest was in the midst of playing their last show. Referring to the emotional toll of performing without former member Phife Dawg, who succumbed to diabetes in March 2016, Q-Tip told the crowd, “We lost our boy Phife Dawg. This is gonna be our last show as A Tribe Called Quest, ever.” The rest of the show proceeded as planned, a tribute to old hits and featuring videos of the group in their younger days.

      Tribe had recorded most of what would become their final album, We Got It from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service, in 2016, before Phife Dawg’s death. It was released by Epic Records on November 11, 2016. They had cancelled multiple appearances during the promotional tour that followed the album’s release, including what had been scheduled as headlining acts at Pitchfork Music Festival and Outside Lands. UK’s Bestival was the final stop planned for the tour, and ends up as the final stop for the hip-hop group.

      The group had previously split following the 1998 release of their fifth album, The Love Movement, which at the time had been billed as Tribe’s final LP and was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 1999 Grammy Awards. Saturday’s announcement concludes the stellar 27 year career for the pioneering hip-hop group. Their first album, People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, dropped in 1990 and their influence on the genre is hard to understate.
