For “French Kiss Deux” Phife teams up with J Dilla’s younger brother Illa J, to pay homage to all the beautiful sights in Montreal. The production by Canada’s Potatohead People, features live instrumentation reminiscent of classic Tribe, 90s music, guaranteed to appease the fans that love that era of music.
New York-born MC and member of A Tribe Called Quest’s highly anticipated album, Forever, is slated to be released in 2021.

Of the upcoming album’s release, Phife’s family stated that “He worked really hard to complete his album before he transitioned, and he was ready to share an album that was near and dear to his heart with his fans. His fans meant the world to him.”
