    True pioneer. He was known as a huge sports fan, and the first to start wearing throwback jerseys. Tribe was one of the smoothest laid back and talented hip hop groups of all time. RIP Phife...

    RIP...loved Tribe so much, saw them live 3 times.

    Such a shame they couldn't get along and Dilla died...we missed out on some classic music, but happy to get what we did. Legitimately changed my life.

    Sad. He seemed like a good guy. Huge sports fan, I remember he shouted out Derrick Coleman in a song back when he was on the Sixers.

    One of the few Tribe songs where Phife did all the rapping. In my opinion, Phife's improvement from album 1 to album 2 was one of the bigger ones ever. Like, say, Demetris Nichols soph. year to Junior year "leap".

    I wish I had gotten the chance to see them. I've at least gotten to see De La Soul and Public Enemy who are way up near the top of my list, but I regret not seeing Tribe who was my favorite of them all.

    Saw them! Randall's Island, way back in the day. Missed De La, though :( I think they had to cancel one of those paloozas I went to and probably just as big a fan of De La, so that one hurt.

    I'll just say it.

    I was disappointed.

    It was a qtip solo album with guests. The songs with phife were great. And it had some really good songs but nothing close to even a find a way territory to be honest. (Nothing even close to the classics)

    I'm still glad it came out and phife got to work with tip again before he died.
