    Phife Dawg - "Nutshell"

    Director: Tony Reames

    The untimely passing of Phife Dawg is, sadly, one of 2016's many tragedies. The founding member of A Tribe Called Quest was just 45 when he died, and left a wealth of unreleased material behind.

    "Nutshell," produced by J Dilla, is one of the crown jewels. The video is pure, uncut Phife—literally. After a few rap legends speak on what Phife means to them in a nutshell (get it?), our dearly departed takes center stage in front of graffiti walls and cityscapes, mic in hand—as he will always be remembered.
