A Tribe Called Quest will be sidelined for a while, because Q-Tip hurt his shoulder, and he’ll require surgery. Unfortunately, the legendary group had to cancel their European appearance at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival and other shows as well.

Also, at this time, there hasn’t been any reports about how Tip’s injury occurred.

“I’ve injured my shoulder and now need to have surgery, which means Tribe won’t be able to perform for our faithful fans in the UK, France [and] Denmark,” wrote the Abstract Poetic. “I’m hoping for a speedy recovery and looking forward to getting back to these countries as quickly as possible to perform for all of you. Much love.”

The festival organizers also released a statement.

“We had obviously really looked forward to presenting A Tribe Called Quest this summer, but we fully understand the doctor’s strict orders that Q-Tip cannot perform after his surgery,” read a press statement.

Hopefully, Tip will be okay and his shoulder won’t be a recurring problem for him throughout the years.
