Before passing away last month due to along battle with diabetes, the late Phife Dawg was working on the album Give Thanks. Premiered Tuesday evening (Apr. 5) on Beats 1 was a track off the LP in the J Dilla-produced “Nutshell.”
“Phife loved his fans, and was so excited for them to hear his new music,” his widow said in a released statement. “I feel like he would have wanted it this way.” A portion of the proceeds from the song’s sale (50%) will be donated to the American Diabetes Association and the National Kidney Foundation.
