The hip-hop world lost Phife Dawg due to complications from diabetes last month and fans are still mourning. Before he passed, he was working on an EP titled Give Thanks and today the single “Nutshell” produced by J Dilla was released posthumously. The song was premiered on Beats 1 Radio, but the accompanying video has also surfaced. In the clip, those close to Phife sum up what he means to them, while he raps about what he thinks of himself through the verses. This is the 5 Foot Assassin in a nutshell.
You can cop the single on iTunes, where part of the proceeds will go to to benefit the American Diabetes Association and the National Kidney Foundation.
