KRS-One – “The Phife Tribute”

blame it on Patrick Glynn April 12, 2016

Everyone has had their way of paying tribute to the late Phife Dawg. Soulection and Q-Tip have both dedicated radio shows to him. Kanye West and Andre 3000 spoke on his influence at a celebration of his life. But KRS-One has delivered a tribute in the rawest way: a lyrical homage on wax.

After “Calling all emcees! To spit a 16 bar! In honor of Phife Dawg,” The One took on his own challenge, delivering a verse full of references and tributes to verses from The Five-Foot Assassin. And don’t worry, he left just enough space between the two choruses for you to put your 16 right in the middle of them

You can buy the song for $5 via Bandcamp, and all to proceeds will go directly to Phife Dawg’s family.
