Following the release of their first album in 18 years, We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service, A Tribe Called Quest were the musical guests on Saturday Night Live alongside host Dave Chappelle—and they made sure the moment was a special one.

Q-Tip took the stage with a fist in the air and told the crowd, "If you're looking at us, stand up, touch somebody next to you. Everybody stand up, one fist up in the air. We are all one. We are the people," before jumping in to a performance of album standout "We The People..." alongside Jarobi.

As Phife Dawg's verse neared, a banner of the Phife Dawg was lowered from the rafters and Q-Tip held a microphone up to his image while Jarobi danced along—a touching tribute to the life of the late emcee.

Watch the performance above.
