Earlier this week the Hip Hop community took a huge loss with the passing of legendary Queens emcee Phife Dawg. Phife, a founding member of the super group A Tribe Called Quest, passed away due to complications stemming from his diabetes. The entire Hip Hop community came together to mourn it’s loss once the news got out about Phife’s passing. Several artists decided to embrace the loss and take those feelings out in the studio, paying tribute to the gone-too-soon emcee.
One artist in particular was Pittsburgh’s Wiz Khalifa. Wiz, who can probably partially credit his laid back flow to Phife, has recently released a remix of A Tribe Called Quest’s classic, “Electric Relaxation.” Listen to the Steel City native’s version of the Hip Hop classic cut below. Also take note that Wiz is actually the second Pittsburgh emcee this week to pay tribute to Phife. Former label mate and frequent collaborator Mac Miller dropped a Larry Fisherman tribute the very same day of Phife’s passing. You can also vibe to the Mac Miller tribute further below.
