|I'm Buggin' Out!|
The Secret Album Dropped!
We Got It From Here, Thank You 4 Your Service - Named by Phife (God Bless the Dead) and recorded prior to his passing in March, it includes new collabos with Elton John, Talib Kweli, Jack White, Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Anderson Paak, and of course Busta Rhymes & Consequence. Sticking to their roots has always been their motto, so you won't find any ghost writers or ghost producers here. All tracks were written and produced by A Tribe Called Quest, and if Dilla was still with us you already know he would have got down on it as well. The Ummah The Ummah Ummah
"We The People", definitely describes our current political state today even before it happened (since the album was mostly recorded last year). It's no wonder it was coincidentally released on Veteran's Day. The song Whateva Will Be reflects that as well: "Some will dash for the mountains some will crawl, and the weakest amongst them they will fall, but the strongest they think they will stand ta-ta-tall, everybody's running when they see the storm's coming but whatever's gonna be will be"
If you haven't copped it already:
The album's name was chosen by Phife, and the rest of the members said they didn't understand it's meaning. But after listening to this album, and searching my memory bank (my brain) it's pretty obvious. Any real ATCQ fan will understand, but if you need to just go back to their first album. It's even in the name, R.I.P Phife Diggy! Been a Native Tongue since day one, thanks for the journey!
