“There is so much love, hope and heartbreak in this book, you can’t help but fall a bit in love yourself.” – Carmen
How does one pay homage to A Tribe Called Quest? The seminal rap group brought jazz into the genre to create masterpieces such as The Low End Theory and Midnight Marauders. Seventeen years after their last album, they resurrected themselves with an intense, socially conscious record, We Got It from Here…Thank You 4 Your Service, which arrived when fans needed it most, in the aftermath of the 2016 election. Hanif Abdurraqib digs into the group’s history and draws from his own experience to reflect on how its distinctive sound resonated among fans like himself.
