A Tribe Called Quest hit the Barclays Center last night (November 20) as the opening act of Kanye West's Yeezus tour's second night in Brooklyn. Besides bringing out Busta Rhymes for a spirited rendition of "Scenario," ATCQ kicked it backstage with Dave Chappelle, Jack White of the White Stripes and the
Mighty Mos Def Yasiin Bey.
The legendary Hip-Hop group had a dope set—which featured a real life Bonita Applebum—for what is allegedly one of its final shows as a unit. It also happened to be Phife Dawg's birthday and the Tribe and friends celebrated the 5 Foot Assassin's birthday with a cake designed to look like a mic and a gold chain as well as sports themed cupcakes.
Peep images of the eclectic mix of individuals ATCQ naturally brings together in the gallery. Check out footage of "Scenario," courtesy of Real Talk NY, on the last page.
Also, Q-Tip was recently spotted in the studio with Kendrick Lamar (photo is in the gallery, too). Let that marinate.
