"This time last year, myself, Jarobi, Ali and Phife had the extreme pleasure of performing on The Tonight Show. It was our first TV performance in 18 years," writes Tip on IG.
"The energy for us that night was one that we hadn't experienced on stage together in some time!
"It was also the night of the Paris bombing...Nov. 13th...A unseasonably warm night in NYC.
"As we left 30 Rock I felt the need, we all did, to get back to the studio and start that cook up!! SO WE GOT TO IT!!
"It was coming together nicely and as you may know we lost our BROTHER may GOD REST HIS SOUL on March 22nd. But he left us with the blueprint of what we had to do.
"So we collected ourselves and along tribesmen, Busta and Cons...we completed what will be, obviously the final A TRIBE CALLED QUEST ALBUM! No this isn't filled with old Phife bars...this is that pure, unstepped on pure!! And on November 11th, 2016 we will complete our paths of rhythm. Join us! Peace!! Q-Tip."
Needless to say, it's fucking lit. Read Tip's message below.
