I write this with a very heavy heart. The last death in Hip Hop that effected me this much was Dilla’s. Tribe is undeniably one of the most important and influential Hip Hop acts of all time. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
I’ve been at a loss for words since finding out this morning and I decided to put this energy into bringing you his music, to reminisce, to celebrate his life and work.
There’s only one thing I want to say: We are losing too many of our greats at young ages not to violence, but to illness. We don’t talk about or promote a healthy lifestyle enough in Hip Hop. We lost Phife to his battle with diabetes at only 45 years old. We can’t afford losing any more of our own. Take care of you, take care of your health, your bodies. Do it for yourself and also for us all.
We love you, Phife.
