Ep. 15 – Put ONE Up for The Phifer
This episode of the podcast is particularly special to me because it allows us to talk about two of our passions: Hip-Hop and wellness.
We recently lost Phife to complications due to his battle with type-1 diabetes. For those of you who aren’t aware, Phife was 1/4 of A Tribe Called Quest, the MC with the penchant for sports references and the Trinidadian roots.
Tribe was THAT group in hip-hop that defined the art for much of the 90s. We watched them come up as prodigies of the Jungle Brothers and be embraced by the world as they refined their sound. Phife, who was particularly quiet on the first album, aside from perhaps the Bonita Applebum remix, burst onto the scene in the 1991 release “The Low End Theory” release.
“Yo! Microphone check 1-2 what is this!?” will forever be a mark in hip-hop.
For this episode we asked our friends and families to call in with their stories and accounts so that we could share with you.
