1. During the 2017 Grammys, A Tribe Called Quest performed a medley of the hip-hop group’s songs, which also included a guest spot from Anderson .Paak.
Things got political real quick.
2. Busta Rhymes, a frequent A Tribe Called Quest collaborator, was also in the mix on stage, and he called out President Donald Trump.
“I just want to thank President Agent Orange for perpetuating all of the evil that you’ve been perpetuating throughout the United States,” he said in the middle of the performance. “I want to thank President Agent Orange for your unsuccessful attempt at the Muslim ban.”
5. The group ended their politically charged performance with Q-Tip chanting, “Resist!”
6. Paak, a Grammy newcomer, earned a nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album for his album, Malibu. A Tribe Called Quest was not nominated for any Grammys, as We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service, their last ever album, was released in November after the deadline for 2017 Grammy nominations. ATCQ is eligible for the 2018 Grammys.
