Redman Shares New Details Into Phife Dawg’s Long-Anticipated Posthumous Album
Speaking as a guest on The Combat Jack Show, Redman shared a few never-before-details about Phife Dawg’s posthumous album.
First things first, we want to share some “get well” wishes to the homie, Combat Jack, who is fighting a bout of colon cancer. Secondly, the popular podcast show had veteran rapper Redman on as a guest. During the interview, the Gilla House MC shared specifics and insights around the late, great Phife Dawg’s long-anticipated posthumous album.
“Rest in Peace, Phife Dawg. I was blessed to be in his last days before he died,” Redman tells hosts A-King and Just Blaze around the 28-minute mark. “Me, him and Busta [Rhymes] shot a video. Now, when I tell you this new Phife Dawg album is ridiculous, yo! He just sitting to wait to get the right deal so it can come out. But we got a video — me, Busta and Phife Dawg. His album is like some old back-in-the-day — yo, his album is ridiculous. That’s what I’m really looking for.”
With Phife’s album seeming in limbo, we were able to share a few exclusives to whet the appetite of his hardcore fans.
“I hope they find the right deal for that, and it get platformed the right way where we can all help push that shit and make Phife happy,” Redman stated. “Because I never seen Phife as happy as he was on his last days, seeing me and Busta in a video with him. He was so pleased and I seen it in his eyes. I could see the pain he was going through [as] far as what he was going through internally, but he was happy and he kinda knew — it was at peace, bruh. That’s what I’m really looking forwarwd to, man: him really releasing that album, so he can really rest in peace the right way.”
Back last year, Phife’s wife, Desha Head Taylor had announced that Phife’s posthumous album would drop early 2017. “He completed his entire solo album before he transitioned, so we’re excited about releasing that,” she said.
