A Tribe Called Quest just played their final ever show in Los Angeles; here’s the setlist

Surviving members of A Tribe Called Quest, Q-Tip and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, hit the stage at FYF Fest today in Los Angeles – one of only a handful of times the pair have performed since the death of founding member Phife Dawg and the release of their sixth and final studio album We Got It from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service.

Towards the end of the set, Q-Tip confirmed that it would be the final show in Los Angeles for the iconic hip-hop outfit, who also appeared earlier this month at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago.
