There was hearsay that the group had one last album in the chamber, and Quest member Q-Tip has confirmed the rumours via a handwritten note on Facebook.

"No, this isn't filled with old Phife bars," Q-Tip states. "This is that pure, unstepped on pure!"

Busta Rhymes and Consequence are scheduled to appear on ATCQ's final album - their first original long-player since 1998's The Love Moment.

A new single/video called "We Are The People" is expected soon, with full album details due 9 November.

The as-yet-untitled record is out 11 November via Epic.
