A Tribe Called Quest Shares Their Final Video "The Space Program"

A Tribe Called Quest are marking their return with a odyssey in space. It’s almost fitting that a send-f to space marks their return and last video as a group, all in one shot. We Got It from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service is destined to be the group’s final bow. The group was able to source posthumous material from their brother Phife Dawg, as well as contributions from hip hop’s elite i.e. Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Busta Rhymes, Kanye West, and even Elton John who fancies himself a groovy person for all intents and purposes.

The video, directed by Warren Fu, places Q-Tip on a space exodus, or rather as a captive space invaders. The video is imbued with political imagery, as vintage photos Muhammad Ali and Rosa Parks come into view as a reminder the racial struggles current and past. Q-Tip and Jarobi deliver a spoken word performance at a cross-section in the story:

“They’d rather lead us to the grayest water poison deadly smog/ Mass un-blackening, it’s happening, you feel it y’all?/ Rather see we in a three-by-three structure with many bars/ Leave us where we are so they can play among the stars,” 

The video ends with a heartfelt eulogy for Phife Dawg. A Tribe Called Quest album or song would have been nil without his presence.
