There's a lot of cameos...but I didn't see Busta. Did I miss him?

...also when was the last time you listened to We Got It from Here... Thank You 4 Your Service? Has your opinion changed since it originally dropped?

Opinion is that it's only gotten better. What a great sendoff.

Same here, came in to say all that.
I try to avoid be ridiculous about it, but I really have loved this album from the jump.
I was lukewarm on "We the People", "Kids", and "Killing Season" when it first dropped, but they've all grown on me some.

From day 1 I didn't love that song but it's grown on me a tiny bit at least to the point where I don't skip it. But the rest ? Whewwww

I listen to that album regularly, it's nothing less than a masterwork. It's the best late-era work by a Hip Hop group ever, in my opinion.

I'd have to give it more thought but off the top of my head I tend to agree. Just a tremendous piece of work.

There were parts that I got, and then it lost me towards the end. I don't think it was executed very well. So it won't resonate with me as being their final "video". Although I think he was trying to do a short film. The cameos were okay. Mostly filled with the usual suspects within tribe's ilk. But seeing ladybug mecca was a very, very nice surprise. I would've liked to see more of her in that sequence. She's always been dope to me.

I think the end credits is the best part of the video by giving phife a very honorable send off.

I'm going to miss hearing new music from them.

because I have a 6 CD changer in my car and it really hasn't left the rotation. I'm just so happy they got back together on the low and gave us one more gift.

The video is cool, the song by itself is one of my favorites on the LP. Jarobi's verse gets me hyped every time!

The photos of Phife & the crew left me sad.

but this one has more cultural relevance obviously and hits you in the feels. Always love seeing extended Tribe family show respect and love by taking part. Tip really did his thing on the song too, during that chess scene with faceless white dude the visuals and his spitting shine. RIP Phife for real!

The album is still in regular rotation, and I love it so damn much. I honestly feel like I need to play it because of how lucky I still feel just for its existence and quality. Who would've thought they could come back and drop a stellar record that feels like them (a special alchemy that no one can duplicate) and fresh at the same time. Could go on, but really I just am thankful to the Tribe. And looking forward to The Last Zulu aka (apparently) The Riot Diary. Tip says it's coming soon. Hope it happens because he really showed what he is still capable of on the Tribe album.

Tribe forever man, they blessed us and called it a day. So dope.

I listened to this album regularly when it dropped. When the songs come on my Spotify list I'm glad to hear them.

But this album reminds me of the Presidential Election of '16 so it's hard to revisit this album simply because of all of the dread that was around when this dropped.

This album is also a good form of encouragement to focus on social issues and bust back at the system of oppression our country seemingly can't stop. It's protest music that I don't think Tribe ever chose to engage in during their run which I think shows how the band had matured over the years.

I liked the video. Like Airbreed, the editing didn't 'quite' work out. But I think the visuals of Tip and the group in the robes and watching Tip and the faceless White man worked well along with the design of the spaceship and even the use of the glowing orb to represent Phife.

I was just posting on Facebook as I shared the video how unexpectedly sad I was watching the video as it is not official that this album and this video is the last anyone will see of Tribe as a whole. We'll still have Tip and also the other affiliated artists. But Tribe was the first group that seemed like masters of their craft.

I remember geeking out over LET and MM because of the sonic and sample choices. How Tribe managed to flip the notion of jazz in hip-hop by making a hip-hop album using jazz samples that sounded distinctly hip hop rather than a song like Cantoloupe by US3 which was a jazz song that was only hip-hop because it was fast paced and had rapping over it. And how MM was supposed to be Tribe's gangsta album but because they executed the street talk with the upbeat, innovative, and imaginative samples along with the amazing mixing and mastering, the album came off as classic. It also shows how their image was that Midnight came off as gangsta for them. It sounds so tame now.

Tribe was the soundtrack of my life and were role models to me in the sense that they showed how far intelligence, originality, and positivity could take someone.

I'm getting off pretty far down on Memory Ln. now so I'll end this.

But I do plan on getting back to this album at some point because it is one of the better final albums of a group that I can remember of any group or artist. I'm glad the fans have this record to have as their last then TLM.

The most comfortable and wisest people are those who watch their health when they are healthy; guard their country when it is untroubled; and cultivate their fields well when weeds are nonexistent or scarce. - Reverend Dosung Yoo

It's an apocalyptic video where everybody is inside a program that is malfunctioning and glitching as those in it are fighting it. Once they get out of it and win, everything smooths out. You'll notice towards the end the video has a more fluid feel to it, and ends with the three remaining members walking into the sun (which mirrors the ending of I Left My Wallet in El Segundo where they walk into the distance, obviously towards their future).

They really brought their career trajectory home in a great way, gaining one more victory for their brand of Hip Hop before calling it quits.

Made something that’s true to the group and fresh at the same time, so many years later. That can’t be easy to do. What an album.
