Music That Matters: We The People | A Tribe Called Quest

Music has a way of becoming the soundtrack to people’s lives. A Tribe Called Quest delivered a stellar album with near perfect timing. We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service is ATCQ’s final album and it is a well put together combination of beats, rhymes, and socially conscious lyrics. The album dropped on 11/11, which is a symbolic moment in time for most. This album includes “We The People” , a track that should be the theme music for the current years ahead. In the wake of the election and the tone of the world overall, it is definitely a fitting tune. The song was recorded prior to the election. The accuracy of the vibe is uncanny.

“We The People” addresses a variety of phobias and -isms that are affecting society on a whole. The video for this song sees Q-Tip speaking to the masses via loudspeaker. People begin running towards the voice to gather and rally. Phife Dawg is on the track and the team made sure he was represented in the visual. Press play on the video above and be sure to cop the album, if you haven’t already done so.
