Out of respect for Phife Dawg.
A Tribe Called Quest took to their native New York City to headline Day 3 of the Panorama Festival, and according to the group the performance will be their last in the city following last year's passing of fellow member Phife Dawg.
It was last year that emcee Q-Tip revealed that the group's performances this year would be their last as a unit out of respect for Phife, whose role in Tribe cemented his title as one of Hip-Hop's most influential figures.
Last week, the group headlined FYF Festival in Los Angles, also announcing that it'd be their final performance in that city.
It seems they're holding true to their word to finally calling it quits as A Tribe Called Quest--a bittersweet moment in Hip-Hop history for one of the genre's most definitive collective of artists.
