The sad news about the death of Tribe Called Quest's member Phife Dawg made me dedicate an hour and a half from my four-set last Saturday to the music and legacy of this unique movement. Occasionally I've slipped in other stuff too. Putting together records from all the way back to Jungle Brothers' debut and the legendary posse cut 'Buddy' to the recent music of some of those artists, I tried to trace the line from 'then' till 'now' rather than include only music from the era when the Native Tongues were together. In a sense they are still together, but now one member short. Rest in peace to Phife Dawg.
