Less than 24 hours of Phife Dawg’s passing, Mac Miller put together an instrumental tribute to the late A Tribe Called Quest emcee. Mac collected some of Phife’s legendary lyrics from A Tribe Called Quest’s “1nce Again” and spliced them with a freestyle the group did on Arsenio Hall over some production from Mac himself.
We can expect plenty more tributes both written and sung in the coming weeks, Listen below to Mac Miller’s remembrance on 5 Foot Assassin, its title borrowing from the hip hop legend’s famous nickname.
