Tuesday New Music: We The People by A Tribe Called Quest

A Tribe Called Quest: We The People

A brief caveat, I know this album was released weeks ago, however it is still roughly new and has not been plied from my brain no matter how hard I try.  Releasing their first album in 18 years and a few months after the death of prodigious member Phife Dawg, the mavericks of Hip Hop come storming back into the game with the banger We The People.  With a killer beat with their trademark solid drum hooks the Queens combo take aim at the current state of affairs in America.  From gentrification to gay rights Tribe takes on the issues that are not only plaguing their own communities but America as a hole.  The album recorded in secret luckily was able to get some dynamite bars from founding member Phife Dawg before his passing in March, and they solidify what will surely be an instant Tribe classic.
