A Tribe Called Quest's two performances on NBC's Saturday Night Live were nothing short of a full hip-hop miracle.

Performing new tracks "The Space Program" and "We The People" off We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service, Tribe rocked the stage with members Q-Tip and Jarobi exchanging lyrics, with a touching inclusion of Phife's verse through a hanging portrait. Surprise cameos from longtime Tribe affiliates Busta Rhymes and Consequence made the moment all the more special. It was SNL's first rap performance this season, and sets a bar tremendously high for all to follow.

During the show's closing moments, host Dave Chappelle mentioned how hard it is to mount a comeback alone and thanked Tribe for joining him on the landmark episode.
