A Tribe Called Quest: The Space Program

Poignant final video from Tribe for one of the joints from their last album, We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service. Filmed posthumously following the death of Phife back in 2016, the video sees Tip and Jarobi rapping against an isolated space age dystopian backdrop. In a testament to Phife’s popularity and the sense of unity that groups like Tribe brought to the hip hop world and beyond, his contributions are mimed by various music luminaries, including Erykah Badu, Questlove, Vince Staples and Janelle Monae. All in all a fitting tribute to Phife and Tribe as a whole.
