A new track has emerged with the late, great Phife Dawg rapping over a classic J Dilla production. The new Phife Dawg track “Nutshell” and new memorial video comes from Smokin’ Needles Records. Some speculated that the group A Tribe Called Quest were working on a new album set to drop in 2016, however it turns out that Phife was actually working on a solo album “Give Thanks.”
