#PhifeDawgRIP: Bomb Sniffing For Forgotten Phife Dawg Funk
**Bomb Sniffing for Forgotten Phife Dawg Funk: R4080 DataBass Document of Detection #1**
Article of Evidence:
"Let The Horns Blow"
The Fabulous Chi-Ali (1992, Relativity), debut album by Chi-Ali
Production Lab Chemist(s):
The Beatnuts (JuJu, Psycho Les, former associate Fashion aka Al Tariq)
Associates found at the scene with Phife Dawg:
Dres (of Black Sheep), Trugoy the Dove (Plug Two of De La Soul) later known as Trugoy then finally and most boringly known as Dave, Fashion/Al Tariq and Chi-Ali
Evidentiary Timestamps for Phife Dawg Funkiness:
3:14 begins the introductory toast/shout-outs during the horn break, 3:25 begins da real 'ting as verse begins, 4:11-4:16 ludicrously speedy maximum velocity is achieved, 4:26 Dynomutt dismount gets stuck
Funky Introduction of how nice he is:
"YO! Doggy-Doggy Diamond, Guess Who's Next? The Five-Foot Assassin with The Microphone Checks..."
Non-Bully b/w Non-Punk Testament:
"Conceited? I guess it's..something like that/'Cuz God don't make no jokes so I know I ain't wack"
Others Leaving Smoke:
-Where can anyone else go on this record after Dres of Black Sheep, a shooting-star at absolute apex in Spring of '92, leads off with "YO! One's for Ya Mother, Two's for Ya Pops, Three's for The N*ggas That's Tryin to Kill the Cops" in a climate still waiting to see how the LAPD/Rodney King Video plays out? Dres, being a habitual line-stepper between brash/satirical and something closer to IDGAF ignorance, must not have felt the Simi Valley trial move was a good sign at the time.
-Trugoy is prolly 21/22 here but already has his"slightly older cousin/uncle talking to you like he's your daddy" thing going. He's pretty good at it tho.
Rapper left with DC20 Aircraft Tracks All On His Back:
-Chi-Ali's anchor run is pretty far from fabulous. Who on his team let them turn his album letting that take stand? He's a kid, man. Someone shoulda looked out for him a little bit. These are the dangers a child star can face. Too Much. Too Soon. Used & Abused. Served Like Hell. Till One Day, Like Dana Play(to) On "America's Most" In A Cell.
