A Tribe Called Quest Reveals Artistic Cover for ‘We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service’
We are a week away from the release of what is arguably the most anticipated album of 2016. A Tribe Called Quest will drop their final project, We Got It From Here... Thank You For Your Service, on Nov. 11, and the iconic group has unveiled the cover art for the album.
According to Complex, the artwork was created by photographer and painter Richard Prince. If you look at the left hand corner, you will notice the reference to ATCQ's second album, The Low End Theory, with the woman painted in red, black, and green. The cover also includes the group's iconic logo in green, as well as a naked woman taking a selfie.
It’s an interesting and artistic cover art to say the least. We have a feeling that ATCQ will address the popularity of social media in one or many of their songs.
As for the album, it’ll feature guest appearances form Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Busta Rhymes, Jack White and Elton John. In an interview with the New York Times, Q-Tip said talk of a new Tribe project first came after the group performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut effort, People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm.
“It felt right,” he said. “The energy was right. It felt like we was those kids that had that big show in Paris when they were 19. It felt fresh. It felt exciting. It felt new. Plus, it was just good to be with my brothers after all of that time.”
ATCQ’s We Got It From Here... Thank You For Your Service is the group’s first full-length in 18 years and a bittersweet ending for the group who have left an indelible impression in hip-hop history.
