A Tribe Called Quest have revealed that their headline slot at the U.K.’s Bestival music fest might be the final show before they breakup for good.

The Guardian reported during the Panorama Festival in New York, Tribe member Q-Tip announced that the rap group are performing their final few shows. The group are touring currently promoting their final album We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service. 

Q-Tip announced the group’s breakup before paying tribute to Tribe founding member Phife Dawg who died March 2016.

With only a handful of dates left of their world tour, this suggests that their last show as A Tribe Called Quest will go down at Bestival in the UK this September.

Phife Dawg’s wife, Desha Head Taylor, revealed back in November that he’d recorded a solo album before his death, with the aim to release the album at some point this year.

Could this be the end of “Tribe”? Is there any ‘Scenario’ that could give this collective a rebirth?
