More Throwback Thursday tracks from Tim Westwood, and this week he’s joining the rest of the hip hop community in celebrating the late Phife Dawg’s legacy. He reaches back to 1999 for this unreleased freestyle of Phife Dawg.
The 5 Foot Assassin is joined by Wildchild and Madlib, so you know they all came correct on the mic. Phife gets the first and last verses, absolutely ripping them, while Wildchild and Madlib get the second and third verses respectively. No offense to the other two, but Phife Dawg shows them up during this session.
A Tribe Called Quest recently released a statement on their founding member’s passing, which you can read here.
Out in the L-O-N-D-O-N, England
you don't have heart, I wear you like a pair of Clarks
like that huh, crush you like a lemon
send you to heaven, like my man John Lennon
- Phife Dawg
