About Phife Dawg

As a founding member of the pioneering rap group A Tribe Called Quest and their extended Native Tongues family, Phife Dawg helped revolutionize hip-hop. After playing a key role in classic ATCQ albums throughout the '90s, Phife had a hearty solo career in the 2000s and beyond. He died in 2016 while secretly working on Tribe's sixth and final album We Got It from Here...Thank You 4 Your Service, what would be the group's first new material since disbanding after the release of The Love Movement in 1998. After having been in the works since the mid-2000s, Phife's second solo album, Forever, was released posthumously, completed by his business associate DJ Rasta Root .
