While the tragic news about Phife Dawg’s passing continues to spread, Mac Miller wasted no time in hitting the studio and paying tribute to the late A Tribe Called Quest member. On this new release, “5 Foot Assassin,” Mac (aka Larry Fisherman) splices Phife’s rhymes from “1nce Again” with an old freestyle on Arsenio Hall, and lays them over a somber soundbed that captures the mood of this sad day in hip-hop.
“RIP Malik Taylor. Thank You,” Mac wrote.
