Q-Tip’s Phife Dawg Tribute

Yesterday, Q-Tip took to Twitter to write an emotional tribute to his late brother Phife and how he’s accepting the news. I thought this was stirring and worth alone reposting.

Earlier today too, ATCQ honored Phife in Queens and the pics from the crowds are worth a look here.

Turning the corner, the celebration of Phife’s life will continue with new music, dropping tomorrow. That’s right! And on top of that, it’s the late Dilla on the beat. “Nutshell”, as teased below, is likely from a solo album that Phife was working on at the time of his passing called, Give Thanks. The ‘un’ alliteration is real hot so far so I can’t wait to see/hear tomorrow. Plus, it’s somethin’ to support…

“Phife loved his fans, and was so excited for them to hear his new music,” his widow said in a statement. “I feel like he would have wanted it this way.” 50% of the proceeds from the song’s sale will be donated to the American Diabetes Association and the National Kidney Foundation.
