Queens hip-hop legends A Tribe Called Quest stunned their hometown crowd Sunday at New York’s Panorama music festival, when rapper Q-Tip announced in the middle of their main-stage set — which was attended by Dave Chappelle, Amy Schumer, and Aziz Ansari — that this would be Tribe’s final NYC-area concert. “This is our last show here in New York, that’s it — as Tribe. You know, we gotta honor our brother, Phife Dawg,” Q-Tip explained, staring up at a video-screened image of his late bandmate.
Frank Ocean made a powerful statement on Friday night at the Panorama Music Festival held at Randall's Island Park in New York City. During his performance, he wore a white t-shirt with the words "Why be racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic when you could just be quiet?" across the chest.
