 We Got It From Here...Thank You 4 Your Service

It's finally here. Their sixth and final album We Got It From Here...Thank You 4 Your Service A Tribe Called Quest has jam-packed this album with nostalgia inducing sounds.  With features from almost everyone I care about, André 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Talib Kweli and Busta Rhymes to name a few, the album stays true to ATCQ's ability to blend thoughtful and "deep" lyrics with hypnotic and colorful rhythms.  I think I need some time to take this one in. Split into Voulme 1 and 2, Phife Dawg also makes his contribution on the album, may he rest in peace.  

Check back with me, but one of my favorite aspects of the album is Busta Rhymes' commitment to his yardie accent! As one of the most dexterous rappers to ever bless the mic, Busta hones in on his Jamaican heritage, and that only makes me love him and the album even more.  

Make sure you check the album out below, if you haven't already.  True hip-hop history.  Any fan of hip-hop already knows the contribution A Tribe Called Quest has made to the genre. They were instrumental in changing the sound and flow, and any real hip-hop artist considers them one of their biggest inspirations.
