The Grammys honored hip-hop the 35-plus year journey of hip-hop on Thursday night at “Word Revolution: A Celebration of the Evolution of Hip-Hop.” Naughty By Nature and Phife of A Tribe Called Quest were among the performers at the event which was held at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles.

The break-up of A Tribe Called Quest in 1998 was truly the end of an era.
