Phife Dawg’s Last Solo Album Coming in 2017

By Amanda Wicks

We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service, A Tribe Called Quest’s sixth and final album, wasn’t the only thing Phife Dawg worked on before he passed away in March after complications with diabetes. The rapper was also recording a follow up to his 2000 debut solo album, Ventilaton: Da LP and that project will appear in 2017.

Phife’s widow Desha Head Taylor spoke at a press conference over the weekend before the ceremony co-naming a Queens street after her late husband. During that event, she shared that he had been hard at work on his solo album before he passed away, and how his team was working equally hard to prepare it for the public. “His solo album will be out probably sometime during the first quarter of 2017,” she said. “We’re working on it now. He completed his entire solo album before he transitioned, so we’re excited about releasing that.” (via OkayPlayer).

No word on the specific release date yet, but considering A Tribe Called Quest’s latest album recently landed at the No. 1 spot on the charts, it’s clear fans are excited about what else Phife wanted to say before he left this world.
