Jerry Nice Presents Live & Direct - A Phife Dawg Tribute - 2016

CD - 2016 

"On March 22nd 2016, hip-hop lost one of its most iconic voices when Malik Taylor (better known as Phife Dawg aka The Five Foot Assassin) passed away following a 25 year battle with diabetes. The mark he left on the music industry is well documented, most notably for being a founding member of A Tribe Called Quest, one of the greatest & most consistent rap groups of all time. 

This mixtape from Jerry Nice entitled "Live & Direct – A Phife Dawg Tribute" pays homage not only to his work within the group, but also several solo tracks & guest features throughout his career. "

All proceeds from the CD's go to The American Diabetes Association.
