These are getting really sad to keep writing in 2016. Gone way too young, R.I.P. Phife Dawg.
My love of hip-hop I can say was sprouted from listening to A Tribe Called Quest. Sure there were others too but there was always something about ATCQ, a realness and authenticity. Like other groups, they had their issues and eventually disbanded (and got back together on special occasions, lastly I believe in Nov. 2015 on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon) but together, they were simply the best.
“You on point, Tip?”
“All the time, Phife.”
