Hero Records Show #51 (2016-05-15) – You On Point Phife?

I was already planning on playing some Tribe on this show, when the terrible news came through of Phife Dawg’s death, so I had to open the show with them. That’s followed up with more 90s Golden Era hip hop, a cheeky mash-up we (Hero No.7) did for the Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul festival promo video, and rather fine we think it is too! And then we just have a load of funk, both old and new. All in all, hopefully an acceptable tribute to a hip hop great.
