A Tribe Called Quest 'Dis Generation' (Video)

A Tribe Called Quest Jarobi Q-Tip Ali Shaheed Muhammad Phife Dawg

I've been eagerly waiting on a video for this track since the album dropped last November. A Tribe Called Quest's 'We Got It From Here...Thank You 4 Your Service' is pure art; a gift from Rap legends, and the perfect tribute to one of our fallen greats, Phife Dawg. "Dis Generation finds the remaining members of Tribe (Q-Tip, Jarobi, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and longtime collaborator Busta Rhymes) dancing in the shadows — literally and figuratively — as they school listeners with lyrical wordplay. For a group whose visual presentation has always been on-point, it's right up there with the best Tribe videos of all time — word to Phife, whose presence is felt verbally if not visually." (NPR) Take a moment to enjoy the video below, it's directed by Hiro Murai. R.I.P., Phife Dawg.
