Watch A Tribe Called Quest’s Mesmerizing “Dis Generation” VideoImages via Epic Records/YouTube Music Video A Tribe Called Quest
Hip-hop legends A Tribe Called Quest have released the music video for “Dis Generation” off their latest fantastic album We Got It From Here … Thank You 4 Your Service—watch the mesmerizing video above.
Directed by Atlanta’s Hiro Murai, the black-and-white video spans a seemingly endless shot of subway platforms, concert halls and busy side streets. Q-Tip, Jarobi and Busta Rhymes drift in and out of the scene, appearing and then disappearing just as fast as the camera moves continuously. A posthumous verse from Phife Dawg, to whom the group dedicated their politically charged Grammy performance, is layered into the song. “Dis Generation” was already a fantastic track, and the silky-smooth video just serves to make us re-appreciate Tribe’s creative genius.
