Phife Dawg is taking us back for a minute with his new release, "Dear Dilla." The record pays tribute to late producer J. Dilla, while at the same time Phife puts down the current rap scene and style, and reminisces about back-in-the-day. You can read his criticism of our current rappers below.
Phife is currently at work on a solo album,Â MUTTYMorphosis, no word if "Dear Dilla" will appear on it.
"Frontin-ass rappers down here still an issue / Posin' like they hard when we know they all see-through / I'ma tell you Dilla why they lackin' skills now / No stage presence, cadence, style / They livin' off of hooks, skinny-jean crooks / Pre-K lyrics, like why we need a book?"
