For the first time since 1996, legendary rap group A Tribe Called Quest, has the No. 1 album in the country, according to Billboard. Their newest record, We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service, released on November 11, sold 135,000 in equivalent album units, with 112,000 of albums sold coming from traditional sales. The group also broke the record for the longest wait between No. 1 hip-hop albums albums, a record previously held by Young Jeezy who went eight years between No. 1 albums.

The news comes one day after the City of New York officially named a street corner—the corner of Linden Boulevard and 192nd Street in Queens, to be exact—after A Tribe Called Quest's Phife Dawg, who died from complications due to diabetes in March.

With this good news in tow, ATCQ may have all the evidence it needs to make good on the world tour that Q-Tip hinted at earlier this week.
