Anderson .Paak will join them.

A Tribe Called Quest are set to perform at this year’s Grammys alongside Anderson .Paak, who appears on We Got it From Here track ‘Movin’ Backwards’ and… uhhh.. Dave Grohl.

Based on a tweet from the Recording Academy, it looks like Grohl will be reviving his Nirvana role and stepping behind a drum kit.

Grohl is, of course, no stranger to the Grammys. His band Foo Fighters have won 11 and during an acceptance speech at the 2012 ceremony, Grohl made a memorable plea for “real music”:

“Singing into a microphone and learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft, that’s the most important thing for people to do… It’s not about being perfect, it’s not about sounding absolutely correct, it’s not about what goes on in a computer. It’s about what goes on in here [your heart] and what goes on in here [your head].”

Having Grohl join a rap group whose DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad is renowned for his vast music knowledge, but doesn’t “play an instrument” should be interesting.

Who won’t see it? Drake, Justin Bieber or Kanye West. Well, at least not from the ceremony. All three artists are reportedly skipping this year’s show, just like Frank Ocean.
