Legendary hip hop artist, A Tribe Called Quest released their last music video today on Apple Music exclusively.

The music video entitled, The Space Program, is from the final album that this hip hop group that weds released in 2016 and that was refreshing to the ears of many music fans around the world.

The eye-popping, eight-minute visual companion to anthem “The Space Program” weaves together everything from Afrofuturism to the civil rights movement to celebrity cameos and VHS grain. Directed by visual-effects artist and music-video director Warren Fu (J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”), the video primarily follows Q-Tip as he journeys in an ’80s-style spaceship. When not admiring Q in some fabulously Tatooine-esque garb, it meditates on issues of racism through a dream sequence, puppetry, civil rights footage, and cameos from various black artists and musicians. Among the famous faces are Questlove, Rosario Dawson, Pharrell, Alicia Keys (characteristically bare-faced), and the Electric Lady herself, Janelle Monáe.
