Earlier this year, Hip Hop lost an icon. After the release of what is said to be A Tribe Called Quest’s final album, Phife Dawg’s memory still lives on. To keep Phife’s spirit alive, over the weekend, Linden Blvd. was officially co-named Malik ‘Phife Dawg’ Taylor Way.
Now, there is even more Phife Dawg news on the way, and it includes more music. Phife’s widow, Desha Head Taylor, has confirmed that a solo album by the emcee is on the way.”His solo album will be out probably sometime during the first quarter of 2017. We’re working on it now,” she said. “He completed his entire solo album before he transitioned, so we’re excited about releasing that.”
While we are waiting for Phife’s solo release we will continue to celebrate the latest release by A Tribe Called Quest that currently sits at the number one spot.
