Late great New York-bred emcee, Phife Dawg. Who many may remember as a member of legendary group, A Tribe Called Quest. Was preparing a new solo album, Forever. Before his untimely passing a little over five years ago.
With Phife Dawg’s Estate, getting set to release the highly-anticipated sophomore solo album. From the Five Foot Assassin. Sometime this year. They released today the very feel-good new single, French Kiss Trois. An ode to Montreal, produced by Potatohead People. That features living legend and iconic emcee, Redman and the younger brother of the late great J Dilla, Illa J.
The very feel-good new accompanying video to the record. That also debuted today. Was co-directed by Reggie Noble, Tony Reames and Konee Rok. Of course being shot in Montreal, Canada. It finds both Redman and Illa J, admiring and wooing the women of Montreal. As they rap and sing their very feel-good and comical verses. With Phife Dawg’s wife, Deisha Taylor, even making a special cameo. As overlooking photographs of their time together, she reminisces on his memory. While the photos of him perform his verses. The whole group, finally all coming together. As they walk and groove down a sidewalk in a park to honor and celebrate Phife, at the end of the feel-good visual.
