Album Review: Forever by Phife Dawg

Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

Based on rating 7/10

​In November 2015, a Tribe Called Quest celebrated the 25th anniversary of their debut album People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm with a performance of "Can I Kick It?" on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, backed by the Roots. The first television performance in over 15 years from the reunited Phife Dawg, Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi White marked a turning point in the group's history; not only was it the night they set their differences aside to begin recording again, but also their last live performance together. ​Phife Dawg, born Malik Taylor, tragically passed away in March 2016 due to complications stemming from his battle with diabetes, a disease he'd been fighting for over 25 years.

'Forever' lands on the sixth anniversary of his ascension, and it's a creditable piece of fan service to one of American music's core figures.
