A Death in the Family – R.I.P. Phife Dawg!

This week’s show is a memoriam to one of the dopest MC’s of all time – Phife Dawg or A Tribe Called Quest fame. Phife’s amenable style and unrelenting metaphors told a story from one of the art form’s most unique points of view. The 5-foot freak, told it like it was and made you understand that Hip Hop is a culture and rhyming is an artform, not only a bi-product of packing a gat or running a criminal enterprise. A part of the transformative Native Tongue crew – A Tribe Called Quest, Phife succumbed to complications tied to diabetes and passed away at 45-years-old. We play the whole discography from People’s Instinctive Travels to the Love Movement and stop to note Phife’s greatness along the way. So microphone check – 1,2 – who is this? This is all about Malik and how he changed Hip Hop on his own terms. He was on point. All the time – It’s Boom Bap Radio.
