THE ROOTS’ QUESTLOVE PENS EMOTIONAL, MUST-READ PHIFE DAWG TRIBUTE

 

 

 

Phife forever 1970-2016. 1991 in Sept I went to visit Tariq at Millersville U in the middle of PA (Lancaster). Miles Davis had just passed & I went on a binge to study his post jazz works. Went to Sound Of Market to purchase Nefertiti, In A Silent Way & Live Evil---the only non jazz purchase I made that day ironically was the most jazziest album in that collection: #TheLowEndTheory by at ATCQ. ---it was raining that day so somehow the 1...2 punch of "Nefertiti"/"Fall" just had me in a trance that train trip---even though I suspected there was a possibility that Tribe could possibly have made a better album then their debut (the perfect at at at at at mic Source rating would be on stands in a week so I was right)---but I knew I wanted to save that listening for when I got up to the campus w Riq.---so some 90mins later when I get to his dorm--we ripped that bad boy open (I can't describe the frustration that was CD packaging in 1991, just imagine the anger that environmentalists feel when all that paper packaging in Beats headphone gets wasted---it's like that)---the sign of a true classic is when a life memory is burnt in your head because of the first time you hear a song. ---Riq & I had this moment a few times, but the look on our faces when we 1st heard "Buggin Out" was prolly Me & Tariq's greatest "rewind selector!" moment in our friendship. (Back then every MC's goal was to have that "rewind!!!" moment. As in to say something so incredible. Or to catch you by surprise that it makes you go "DAAAAAYUM!!!"& you listen over & over---Malik "Phife" Taylor's verse was such a gauntlet/flag planting moment in hip hop. Every hip hop head was just...stunned HE. CAME. FOR. BLOOD & was taking NO prisoners on this album (or ever again) we just kept looking at the speaker on some disbelief old timey radio Suspense episode. & also at each other "Phife is KILLIN!"--by the time we got to "Scenario" I swear to god THAT was the moment I knew I wanted to make THIS type of music when I grew up--(yeah yeah dad I know: "go to Juilliard or Curtis to make a nice living at "real music") but he didn't know that Phife & his crew already wrote my destiny. I ain't look back since. THANK YOU PHIFE!

TPAB uiteraard.

 

Wel cool een CD collectie, ben ook begonnen met een voorlopig zeer bescheiden verzameling aan te leggen ;c

 

Oh is niet van mij die foto he. Al bezit ik er toevallig wel twee van (GKMC en TPAB). Ja voor de hand liggende keuze natuurlijk, enige concurrent is wat mij betreft Section.80. Al zit daar geen overduidelijk concept achter natuurlijk. Untitled Unmastered hoort er eigenlijk niet tussen thuis, aangezien dat gewoon een verzameling B tracks is. Zeker niet onaardig hoor, met track #2 en #7 kun je menig auto opblazen.

[MENTION=22548]Rensationeel.[/MENTION]; Vinnie is een onetrickpony met die flow, als het je ligt, heerlijk. Ik heb het een poos niet gehoord en heb net End Of Days 5x gechecked op YT. Zijn stem is helemaal dope, maar die wordt gecreeerd door die metalen plaat in zn bakkes. Teksten zijn vaak wel raak.
