In celebration of the 5 Foot Assassin's life, Altered Tapes is honored to drop this uptempo soulful House re-take on A Tribe Called Quest's classic "Butter." Utilizing larger portions of the song's original samples from Jazz Fusion artists Weather Report and Gary Bartz, Altered Tapes deliver a flavorful new twist for a jam designed for the dance floor and fun homage to ATCQ.
In 2009 the Radio Boys (Kev Lawrence, C.Truth) had the pleasure of speaking to a much heralded member of A Tribe called Quest, Phife Dawg. Phife explained why he was absent from the scene for the past 4 years and basically needed a kidney from his wife in order to stay alive. The boisterous emcee also shared words on: his new production company Riddim Kidz, his new TV show Phife Alert, the Tribe called Quest documentary directed by Michael Rapaport-executive produced by Nas coming soon and more.
In the immortal words of Tribe's classic 3rd LP, "keep bouncing" to the sounds of the funky diabetic as those who appreciate his contribution to music keep his music alive in 2017 and beyond.
