The Progressive Underground Show 163 (Tribute to Malik Taylor aka Phife Dawg)

Jive Records

Today’s show is dedicated to the legacy of Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor.

On tonight’s episode of The Progressive Underground, we do a tribute to the late Malik Taylor aka “Phife Dawg” of A Tribe Called Quest as we feature an all star panel consisting of internationally-renowned artist/producer Brandon Williams; author/poet, taste-maker and Cafe Mahogany’s iconic host Joel “Fluent” Greene; author/artist, hip hop advocate/historian and Black Bottom Collective founder Khary Kimani Turner; journalist/author and Ren Soul founder Kelly “K-Fresh” Frazier, and rapper/sports writer/hip hop historian Leaf Erikson; who will all chop it up about the legacy of Phife Dawg and the overall impact of A Tribe Called Quest on the music landscape.

We also delve into Phife and Tribe’s respective music catalogs.  We also explore the outer reaches of electronica through our eclectic playlist.  We go from 8-11 pm EST on 101.9 WDET and wdet.org.
