Consequence taps the late Phife Dawg for a previously unreleased song called “No Place Like Home”.
Phife and I worked on “No Place Like Home” in the same time frame as the beginning stages of the last Tribe LP. Even though he was living in The Bay during the last years of his life, we kept in touch frequently and I even brought my son, Caiden to meet him in person while he was in New York which lead to both of us making a cameo appearance in his last solo video. A couple months later unfortunately he passed away and Q Tip asked me to re-join Tribe to help make sure the last LP represented us and Phife’s legacy to the fullest. Once we released “We Got It From Here, Thank You 4 Your Service” I always knew I wanted people to hear this record but it just felt like the timing had to be right. This year it feels right… The one thing I know about Phife is that he’s a rapper’s rapper. The best gift I could give him for his birthday this year is to let the world hear the “5 Foot Assassin” 1nce Again! Happy Birthday Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor.
