With the current political climate, we posited that the arts and music would see an uptick or renaissance similar to the 80’s/Reagan Youth punk and graffiti movements. It was rather apropos that A Tribe Called Quest drops We The People as their music video flag bearer off of their album We Got it From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service.
For some of us on this side for the editorial, We The People is the stand out track of the album. It stands as a musical segue of the post Trump America — steeped both in the political charge of tracks such as Fight The Power and the history of the Native Tongues sound — giving young and old a glimpse of hip hop’s past and the seeds of its future.
Stay tuned for a more in depth analysis of the album and for more information:
