We're exiting the hellscape to indulge ourselves in 90s nostalgia after re-screening Michael Rappaport’s 2012 documentary “Beats, Rhymes and Life: the Travels of A Tribe Called Quest” taking a turn to talk about one of the greatest foundational groups in Rap. OG Nicepiller Bill makes his podcast debut, and Twitter friend lontar rounds out the panel.
This is a deep dive, though perhaps not deep enough given the richness of the material. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy the work of these incredible artists. Yes, the intro is long; stay with it.
RIP Phife.
