Soulection Shares A Two-Hour Phife Dawg Tribute Mix
In the week since his passing, the Phife Dawg tributes have come in all shapes, forms and sizes. From Q-Tip‘s on-air salute to Busta‘s touching remembrance to Kendrick Lamar‘s full-stadium candle-lit vigil in Australia and well beyond, if one thing’s clear, it’s that hip-hop is reeling in the wake of Phife’s passing. But one tip-of-the-hat that may have flown under your radar — and certainly deserves an ear — is Soulection‘s own, which was broadcast last Saturday via Beats 1 Radio and has been freshly made available for you to stream and download, featuring two-hours of rhythmic reminiscences, deep cuts, remixes and, of course, plenty of Dilla, commencing with the Tribe rarity, “That Shit.” The mix was expertly-crafted by Soulection’s Joe Kay and may just be the perfect score for your travels to St. Alban’s Park tomorrow morning, where A Tribe Called Quest will be holding a celebration of Phife Dawg at 10:30AM. Put an ear to the all-too-ill Phife Dawg tribute mix from Soulection down below and join us tomorrow in Queens to raise it up for the five-footer with a necessary and proper memorial. Rest in beats and rhymes, Phife.
