RIP Phife Dawg! The late member of A Tribe Called Quest passed away over five years ago but his music and his legacy carry on with the evolution of hip-hop. Last month, his estate began the roll out for his forthcoming posthumous album, Forever with the single, "Nutshell 2" ft Redman and Busta Rhymes. Today, the second single of the project was released. "French Kiss Deux" ft. Illa J arrived earlier today, boasting production from Potatohead People. The song is an homage to Montreal, a city that Phife Dawg grown to love during his visits to Canada.
"It was such an honor to work on this track with Phife,” Illa J told HipHopDX. “It’s bittersweet. I really wish he was here to celebrate the release of this song. But I know he’s here in spirit, and I’ll never forget him spittin’ his verse over the phone to me. That will always will be a special moment.”

True looking like ow, body's like blaow
Even her chubby pal had a face like wow
Leaving the world film feast
Looking so correct, yeah
Finest thing walking through Montreal Quebec
