Watch A Tribe Called Quest Go To Space And Tribute Phife Dawg In Their ‘Final’ Video

This is it. A Tribe Called Quest bids farewell with their new video for “The Space Program,” the opening track from the group’s stellar 2016 reunion album, We Got It from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service.

The Warren Fu-directed video is being billed as the group’s last, and if that’s true, at least they can say they went out with a bang. It opens with Q-Tip waking up in a spaceship of sorts, as televisions broadcast footage of riots and racist imagery. It’s a theme that’s visited throughout the video, particularly at the end, when the ship malfunctions and the message “I CAN’T BREATHE” — which echoes the last words of Eric Garner — appears. In the end, the three remaining members of Tribe end up on a barren planet. The late, great Phife Dog’s presence, meanwhile, is beautifully represented by a green, glowing orb.

The epic clip also includes a ton of cameos throughout, from Vince Staples, Kelly Rowland, Janelle Monae, Pharrell, Alicia Keys, Rosario Dawson, Anderson .Paak, Common, Questlove, and more. They all appear to rap the song’s urgent hook: “Gotta get it together forever / Gotta get it together for brothers / Gotta get it together for sisters / For mothers and fathers and dead n—as.”

At the end, we see a dedication that reads “For Malik,” or Phife Dawg, who passed away in 2016. As the credits roll, a montage of classic ATCQ photos appear, as the group’s 1990 hit “Can I Kick It?” plays.

Preview the clip below, and watch the full 8-minute video exclusively on Apple Music.

Following the video’s premiere on Thursday (March 29), Q-Tip spoke to Zane Lowe about Phife’s passing. He said, “I miss my boy still. … And in this moment, I just break up when I hear my man’s voice or when I see [a] picture of us, or even if it’s not a Tribe record, I could hear a song that we grew up with, and we will always talk about something that was a personal favorite of ours or a tour favorite, or something that we would joke about or we would recall things like that.”

He continued, “But in terms of the actual group, in a professional setting, you know — I have the closure. I’m good with it. I look back at what we contributed to hip-hop, I look back at what we contributed to music, sometimes with disbelief.”

If Rae Sremmurd Have It Their Way We’re Getting A Childish Gambino Collab Album

Fans are still waiting on the long-delayed Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper mixtape, and now Rae Sremmurd are throwing their hat into the collaboration ring. In an interview with Billboard, the rap group described the potential sound of a Sremmurd and Donald Glover project.

“I got a laptop with about 1,000 bangers,” said Swae Lee. “I know Childish Gambino got about 2,000 or 3,000, who knows? We’re gonna come together and make a whole project like, “Redbone” and “Black Beatles.”

This week, Glover announced he is embarking on a North American tour with Rae Sremmurd starting in September. Later in the Billboard interview, Slim Jxmmi reveals how the two brothers connected with the Atlanta rapper.

“Childish Gambino is a cool guy, we linked overseas in a studio,” said Jxmmi. “I DJ’d one of his house parties one time. He’s just a cool guy and we got the same type of vibe, so you can expect good music to come out of this. It’s natural. We don’t gotta act, we can just be ourselves. He’s himself everywhere he goes, and we’re gonna be ourselves everywhere we go — so it’s just gonna be like two different shows, we from two different places.”

At this point it looks like Glover might have to put off retirement to fit in all of these projects.

Lil Skies & Francia Raisa Bond Over Their Love For Roses On TRL

The TRL studio was poppin’ when Pennsylvania rapper Lil Skies and Grown-ish star Francia Raisa dropped into the building. During a fun discussion about tattoos, Francia and Skies wound up bonding over roses, which they both have tattooed on different parts of their bodies. Skies identifies with being a dark rose, which is why he incorporated it into the title of his latest mixtape, Life of a Dark Rose. As for Francia, she got a rose inked on her ankle to stick it to a disapproving ex.

Later on, Francia shared her feelings on friendship and how it’s something that is really important to her, as demonstrated by her decision to donate her kidney to her BFF Selena Gomez.

“I think the important thing about friendship that people forget is just because you give doesn’t mean you always have to receive,” she said. “Our friendship is amazing and it’s continuing to be amazing, it hasn’t changed. I think that’s what friendship is about, being there for one another but not expecting anything in return. It’s unconditional love honestly.”

After Lil Skies opened up about his mission to live a healthy life without drugs, he performed “Red Roses” with Landon Cube. The track has been played more than 29.8 million times on Spotify and continues to rack up streams. Watch the whole set in the video below and tune into TRL on weekdays at 4:00pm ET!

Did Migos Take Inspiration From Kim and Kanye’s Wedding For Their Latest Performance?

Offset might not be planning his wedding to Cardi B yet, but it seems like he’s being influenced by other famous nuptials. Last night (January 25), Migos appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and performed their Pharrell-produced song “Stir Fry” in front of a wall full of white roses. The scenery is very similar to the wedding of a producer that features on Culture II.

For those that don’t remember, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were married in front of a wall of white flowers in 2014. The estimated cost of the extravagant flowers is $ 136,000. If Migos spent that much on their Tonight Show performance, it would go down as the baddest and boujeeist flex the show has seen in its 64-year existence.

Culture II at a whopping 24 tracks, is out now and features Drake, Travis Scott, and 21 Savage among other star-studded guest appearances.

25 China Sneakerheads Share Their Love of the Legendary Nike Air Force 1

The Nike Air Force 1 is an undeniably iconic shoe, with an instantly recognizable silhouette that has remained timeless since its inception in 1982. The Air Force 1 is a staple of sneaker culture worldwide, and was the pioneer basketball shoe with Nike Air technology, combining performance, culture, and style.

Nike’s entrance into the Chinese market in the 1980s coincided with the release of the Air Force 1′s, during a time in which the cultural boom was at a high, and basketball and hip-hop culture was taking hold of the youths in China. Continuing its cultural relevance all over the world, China embraced the shoe wholly and it had quickly rooted itself in Chinese culture. The word “Nai Ke” (the Chinese transliteration of Nike) quickly became a household name.

Nike has released a a rework of its iconic shoe for the Chinese market, featuring the original 80′s silhouette in an all white premium leather, with a red suede swoosh and “Nai Ke” embroidered in red on its heel. We brought the new shoe to 25 sneakerheads across China to hear their thoughts on the shoe, as well as their personal connections and memories with the Air Force 1s.

Along with a special Nike “Nai Ke” tank, crew and cap, the Nike Air Force 1 Hi “Nai Ke” will be available at Nike and select Chinese retailers later this month.

Take a look at the video and let us know what you think in the comments below.

How Does Rick Ross And Jay Z’s ‘The Devil Is A Lie’ Compare To Their Past Collabs?

devilisalie

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Rick Ross and Jay Z joined forces once again on “The Devil Is A Lie.” The horn-filled track has the two hip-hop heavyweights trading verses on everything from Wing Stop to the Illuminati. Fans took to Twitter to share their initial reactions to the single from Rozay’s forthcoming Mastermind album. Overall, sentiment was largely positive, especially for Jigga’s verse and the K.E. on the Track beat.

“Jay Z is king.. f–k these other rappers. its King HOV.” said Sk8boyMPHO, while Son Abraham observed, “Two kings on the BIG screen @rickyrozay. #thedevilisalie.” “They out did every song this year #TheDevilIsALie b—h I’m the proof” said Dominic Pugh.

This isn’t the first time that Rozay and Jay have collaborated. They traded fierce verses on 2006′s “Hustlin (Remix)” as well as 2010′s “Free Mason ” and of course, the recent banger “F–kWithMeYouKnowIGotIt.” Like their past partnerships, “The Devil Is A Lie” is full of tough talk and braggadocio but it may not be as club-ready as say, “F–kWithMeYouKnowIGotIt.”

Noahman 21 shared this viewpoint tweeting, “That new Rick Ross x Jay-Z record is hard, not there best collabo but still.” Danny P had other thoughts. “Ahhhhhhh sh– Rick Ross and Jay z song coming out today !!!!!!!!!!!!????????yeah yeah prolly best song of the year.”

Do you think “The Devil Is A Lie” is the hottest hip-hop track of 2013?
