A Tribe Called Quest’s upcoming album, We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service, is notable for a number of reasons. Not only is it the group’s first full-length project since 1998’s The Love Movement, the album will also feature posthumous Phife Dawg contributions as well as guest appearances by everyone from André 3000 to Kendrick Lamar to Talib Kweli to Elton John. And, perhaps most importantly, the record will serve as ATCQ’s swan song.
Obviously, the long-awaited project is incredibly significant, both for the group and hip-hop history, which is why a standard album release just wouldn’t suffice. The members wanted to celebrate the milestone with an event that their multi-generational fanbase could enjoy; so, in conjunction with the record’s drop, ATCQ will launch a three-day pop-up shop in their home city.
The event will go down from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Nov. 11, as well as 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 12-13, at 393 Broadway in NYC. In addition to physical copies of We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service, the shop will offer merchandise dedicated to the final project. There will be T-shirts, hoodies, sweatpants, and bomber jackets, all which will feature graphics taken from/inspired by the album’s cover art. For those who are outside of the NYC, the pieces can be purchased in bundle packages today at ATCQ's official webshop.
