DJ Static pulls hip hop icon out of retirement with some new music… ALL for Phife Dawg.
If you guys haven’t heard, or you’ve been living under a rock the past few weeks, we lost hip hop pioneer Phife Dawg due to complications with Diabetes. Since then, many members of the community have expressed their feelings about the tragedy in several different ways.
Bronx native and hip hop veteran, KRS-One, teamed up with DJ Static to show some love to Phife with some new music! DJ Static threw together a funky beat for KRS to rap on, and like it or not you got to respect it, because the duo did their thing. The beat features some electric bass sounds with a choir singing to carry the melody. We definitely think KRS-One absolutely ripped his verse. Here are some quotable lyrics…
“Phife Dawg stay in our hearts…I rememeber A Tribe Called Quest and the K-R-S/Rippin’ down the Car Wash in the L-E-S/Car Wash was the spot where I saw Phife rappin’/The Five Foot Assassin/”
KRS-One also invites other emcees to step up and show what they got. He called out for rappers to spit their sixteen bars in honor of Phife dawg. He also ask fans to donate to Phife’s family.
“If you are a real MC then lay down your 16 bars! In honor of, Phife Dawg. Hashtag, #ThePhifeTribute to spread the word.”
ATTENTION RAPPERS: if you’re a real MC then I suggest you start writing some fire in honor of Phife Dawg.
Shout out to DJ Static for the dope beats!
