A Tribe Called Quest To Reunite On The Tonight Show This Friday

A Tribe Called Quest, one of the greatest rap groups of all time, broke up in 1998 and then reunited in 2008, but they haven’t done any shows since they opened the New York stop of Kanye West’s Yeezus tour in 2013. At the time, they said that would be their final show, but never say never. This week, their debut album People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths of Rhythm celebrates its 25th anniversary, and they’re releasing a reissue that features bonus material like a Pharrell remix. And now Pigeons And Planes reports that they will come back together for a one-off reunion on The Tonight Show on Friday night. All four members — Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and intermittently-active hypeman Jarobi White — will be onstage. As someone who saw the group a couple of times before their first breakup, I can say that they put on one of the best live shows, rap or otherwise, I’ve ever seen. This performance will most certainly be worth your time.
