The late Phife Dawg’s “French Kiss” gets the remix treatment with Redman and Illa J on “French Kiss Trois.” Of course, it’s dope. Why wouldn’t it be?
It’s hard to believe that it has been five years since Phife Dawg passed away. But his family has been hard at work to complete the follow up to his Ventilation: Da LP album that dropped back in 2000. The video for “Nutshell Pt. 2” features Redman and Busta Rhymes and also has cameos from Q-Tip, Consequence and DJ Rasta Roo.
There are no updates on when the album will drop but this is a good sign that we’re going to get something dope.
It still feels unreal that Phife Dawg is no longer with us. But his legacy will live on and the latest reminder of his incredible ability as an emcee comes with “Nutshell Pt. 2” that features Redman and Busta Rhymes joining Phife over a J Dilla production. It’s a sequel to the last song Phife released.
Consequence releases this lost song from the final Tribe Called Quest sessions titled “No Place Like Home” shortly after what would have been Phife Dawg’s 49th birthday.
“I always knew I wanted people to hear this record, but it just felt like the timing had to be right,” Consequence said about the song that is finally seeing the light of day. “This year it feels right. The one thing I know about Phife is that he’s a rapper’s rapper. The best gift I could give him for his birthday this year is to let the world hear the 5 Foot Assassin once again!”
After an exhilarating performance at the Grammys in his honor, a posthumous verse from Phife in collaboration with Dwele surfaces that will be featured on Phif’s album Forever.

Brenton and Kris Kasanova pay homage to the late Phife Dawg with a re-invention of Q-Tip’s “Let’s Ride” to salute the late, great emcee from A Tribe Called Quest.
It’s bittersweet to see this joint from the late Phife with production from J Dilla released. Bitter, because you realize the world has lost two legends. But sweet because they will always live on in our music. Enjoy the collaboration “Nutshell.”
