Just yesterday, A Tribe Called Quest announced it would be opening for Kanye West at two upcoming Yeezus shows in New York. While the match-up makes those shows sound extra awesome, it turns out that they might be monumental for more than just being a killer lineup. That's because, according to Q-Tip, those two shows could be the group’s final two shows ever. The band played an August date in California, and has now decided to end its 28-year run where it began: New York City.
A Tribe Called Quest formed in 1985 and quickly established itself as one of the most successful and critically respected hip-hop groups around. It disbanded in 1998, but reunited six years later for Rock The Bells. Since then, Tribe has been more or less together, playing shows and teasing a new record, but never really fully committing to being a functioning group again.
Tribe’s final two shows (provided it doesn’t get back together in another six years) will be held Nov. 20 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and Nov. 24 at Madison Square Garden.
