Anyone who personally knows me knows that A Tribe Called Quest is my favorite Hip Hop group of all time. With that being said, I was delighted when I got invited out to Phife from A Tribe Called Quest’s exclusive Atlanta video premiere for his new song ‘Dear Dilla’.  The exclusive video screening  was held at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema Theater here in Atlanta GA.  At the screening the “5 footer” debuted the visual to his new single which pays homage to legendary Hip Hop producer J. Dilla who passed away from complications from lupus back in 2006. The screening also featured a short Q&A with Phife as well as with the video’s director Konee Rok.  ‘Dear Dilla’ is Phife’s first solo release in 14 years and is the first single off of of his upcoming album “MUTTYmorphosis”.  While at the premiere I got a chance to interview Phife.  In the interview he talks about why made a tribute song for J. Dilla, what artists he’s checking for in 2014 and how he felt about Macklemore winning all those Grammys.  Check out the interview below:
