Today Hip Hop lost Phife Dawg, a member of the rap trio “A Tribe Called Quest”. I have to go on record and say they were one of the best rap groups of all time. The group formed in 1985 but released their first album in 1991 and reigned until 1998, their music however lives on forever. ATCQ was made of MC/producer Q-Tip, MC Phife Dawg aka Phife Diggy aka Five Foot Assassin, and DJ/producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad. If ATCQ hasn’t been your soundtrack at some point, you’ve missed out. What I love most about Tribe was for the first time I was witnessing the crossover of our music, enjoyed by people who didn’t look like they even liked Hip Hop. It blended cultures, it blended different groups of kids at my school who normally wouldn’t even entertain a second of Hip Hop. Tribe was Hip Hop fused with the best jazz samples, intelligent production and clever rhymes laying an important foundation for Hip Hop history with all their albums.

As I was working on a playlist today, I decided to do this one in honor of Phife Dawg, in honour of one of the best Hip Hop groups to have ever done it. Legends! If you don’t know Tribe, here’s a funky introduction, if you love Tribe like me, then sit back relax and let yourself go.
