Q-Tip has announced the final A Tribe Called Quest album is complete and will arrive on November 11.

In a handwritten note posted on the official ATCQ Instagram page, Q-Tip credited the group’s reunion performance on the “Tonight Show” last year as the spark that lit the flame in them to record new music.

Tip wrote, “The energy for us that night was one that we hadn’t experienced on stage together in some time!”

He went on to write, “As we left 30 Rock I felt the need, we all did, to get back in the studio and start that cook up!! SO WE GOT TO IT!!”

We were devastated when Phife Dawg passed away on March 22.

Q-Tip shared, “He left us with the Blue Print of what we had to do.”
