This past week saw the tragic passing of Phife from A Tribe Called Quest – one of the most underrated and overlooked presences in Hiphop. Tribe were a huge part of the soundtrack of my youth, and it wouldn’t have been right if I hadn’t repped for the Five Foot Assassin on The Ammo Dump.
Slapped wrists all round for my distinct lack of updates over here on the DITC trip. Crashed hard drives, broken streams and a host of other issues keep tryna hold me back, but I can’t let em win.
Its finally out! Check under the player below for all the relevant download links. If you’re fam – click the back cover to blow it up (pause) and see if you made it onto the artwork!
MERC & DJ A to the L came together to re-create a classic album in Hip-Hop history, A Tribe Called Quest’s “Midnight Marauders”. They added their own twist to the project and called it “Daylight Marauders”. The two hip-hop heads both agree that Tribe’s album is one of a kind and are using this project to extend a salute to just how much Tribe’s masterpiece meant and still means to them.
