tribut-track von mac miller:Our hearts are heavy. We are devastated. This is something we weren’t prepared for although we all know that life is fleeting. It was no secret about his health and his fight. But the fight for his joy and happiness gave him everything he needed. The fight to keep his family happy, his soul happy and those around him happy, gave him complete and unadulterated joy… until he heeded his fathers call.
We love his family his mother, his father, his son, his wife, his nieces, his family here in New York, Atlanta, California and Trinidad.
Thank you for the outpouring of prayers and support from the fans, fellow artists, music outlets, blogs, radio stations, DJ’s, social media and the music community at large. This too is part of his joy and means a lot to him. His family is overwhelmed by the support, well wishes and are thankful. His music and what he’s contributed is seismic and hard to measure. He’s affected us as much as he’s affected all of you. We’re inspired by his daily joy and courage. He wasn’t in pain. He was happy. We take comfort in knowing he will be beside his grandmother.
We ask that you respect our privacy at this time.
"We regret to share the news that on Tuesday March 22nd, 2016, Malik has passed away due to complications resulting from diabetes.
According to L.A. Reid, Epic Records will soon release the first album from A Tribe Called Quest in 18 years. The group apparently finished recording the album before Phife Dawg's death in March.
Hip-hop took a huge loss earlier this year with the sudden death of Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest. Almost five months after his passing - though the sting of his absence remains - some fortuitous news has just arrived that fans of the late founding Tribe member will be overjoyed to hear. According to L.A. Reid, A Tribe Called Quest recorded a new album before the group lost Phife. Reid confirmed that his team at Epic Records is currently planning to release the album and that it's "coming very soon."
Reid announced the new Tribe album on the latest episode of the Rap Radar podcast, while he was discussing Epic's recent ventures. "You know what I'm really excited about, though: A Tribe Called Quest," he said. "We have a Tribe Called Quest album coming. I'm really excited about that," before going on to confirm that the album was recorded before Phife's death. "Man, it's something really special," he said of the album.
When it arrives, the album will be A Tribe Called Quest's first since 1998's The Love Movement. Reid also revealed that the album will include all four Tribe members that appeared on the group's debut album, People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, including Jarobi White, who hasn't appeared on any of their LPs since.
