RIP Phife Dawg

Rest in peace Phife Dawg

No one like you or A Tribe Called Quest. A musical backdrop to so many life events.

You are on point Phife and you will be missed, never forgotten. 

I like 'em brown, yellow, Puero Rican or Haitian
Name is Phife Dawg from the Zulu Nation
Told you in the jam that We Can Get Down
Now let's Knock the Boots like the group H-Town
You got BBD all on your bedroom wall
But I'm Above the Rim and this is how I ball
A pretty little something on the New York street
This is how I represent over this here beat
Talking bout you


Music for me is like traveling or watching the New Orleans Saints. I just gotta have it in my life.

Now I cannot carry a tune to save my life and I cannot play an instrument nor do I know much about music but music is certainly a love. There are songs I love and there are artist I love. There are even albums I love and I am not even sure if i would consider myself a fan of some of the albums I love, but the albums that have captured my attention over and over, well, those albums are a part of me.

The album I have probably listened to the most is The Blues by Nina Simone. This album is a mix of songs from the late 60's and early 70's. 

Here they are, the albums I certainly cannot live without...
