Hip hop lost a real one when Phife Dawg passed away earlier this week at age 45 after a lengthy battle with diabetes. It is only right that we honor Phife Dawg with picking a ATCQ track for this week's #TBT track. It was tough to go wrong here but we chose "Find A Way" off the group's fifth and final album The Love Movement.
Why did we choose "Find A Way"? Perhaps it's the beat -- a vintage morsel of J Dilla production that was further immortalized in 2009 by Miguel Atwood-Ferguson's 40-piece orchestra. We also chose the song because it is a great example of Phife's breezy and reflective lyrical style.
Head here for our full list of essential Phife Dawg verses.
Shiieeet... I'm on my J.O.
Bullshitting, hoping that the day goes slow
Got me like a friend, what confuses me though
Is kisses when we breeze, tell me what's the deal yo?
