Performing both classic A Tribe Called Quest and solo material the 5 Foot Assasin Phife Dawg will be hitting the UK for the first time in 4 years at these two rare and intimate shows.
Phife rose to prominence with A Tribe Called Quest and influenced a whole generation of Hip Hop. His witty lines, added a punch and was the perfect contrast to Q-Tips smooth monotone flow. After more of a side role lyrically on People’s Instinctive Travels and The Path’s of Rhythm, Phife became one of the most celebrated lyricists in the history of Hip Hop. His classic lines are recited word for word at live performances across the planet.
I first saw A Tribe Called Quest live at Delaware State University a few weeks after Midnight Marauders dropped. Still in full steam from a now classic that at that time was the newest sound on the street, Phife, Q- Tip, and Ali, put on one of a zillion high energy classic performances. If you are in the U.K. and haven’t experienced this energy for yourself… make sure you go see these shows that London’s #1 Hip Hop promoter Rod “Spin Doctor” Gilmore has put together for all Hip Hop lovers
