In what proved to be the most politically charged performance of the night, A Tribe Called Quest took the stage with Anderson .Paak, Busta Rhymes, and Consequence at 59th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday. During the electric set, the artists performed “Movin’ Backwards,” and “We the People” from the 2015 record We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service.
At one point, Rhymes called Donald Trump “President Agent Orange,” Q-Tip repeatedly yelled out “resist,” and the entire group kicked down a faux-wall.
"I wanna thank President Agent Orange for perpetuating all the evil that you’ve been perpetuating throughout the United States," the 44-year-old Rhymes said during the performance.
"I want to thank President Agent Orange for your unsuccessful attempt at the Muslim ban,” he continued while women sporting hijabs lined the stage. “But we come together. We the people!"
As far as awards go, .Paak was nominated in two categories including Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album for his debut record, Malibu. Meanwhile, ATCQ wasn’t eligible for the ceremony since their album dropped past the award show’s deadline.
