A Tribe Called Quest and Anderson .Paak shook up the 2017 Grammy Awards with their political performance, starting with "Award Tour" before kicking down a wall for the protest anthem "We the People."

"To all of those people around the world,” Q-Tip said, “all of those people who are pushing people who are in power to represent them, tonight, we represent you. And we also dedicate this to our brother who’s not here, Phife Dawg.”

The late, great Phife Dawg's vocals even rang out through the Staples Center as his illustrated image was projected onto huge screens.

Anderson joined the group by showcasing his skills on the drums, where he blended “Come Down” off his Malibu album with “Movin Backwards,” from Tribe’s We got it from Here…Thank You 4 Your service album.

Busta Rhymes and Consequence also joined them. Busta took the opportunity to call out "President Agent Orange" for dividing people, while Q-Tip yelled out "Resist!" numerous times at the end of their performance.
