Three years ago, this weekend, the world lost rapper Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest. Tonight, comedian Dave Chappelle is about to make history by performing in Tokyo, Japan. The timing couldn’t be more poignant. Tickets to the show sold out at the speed of an eye blink. Sunni Colón is everything right now. Boss is underrated yet responsible for birthing a lot of today’s most revered rappers. Rick Ross owes a lot of his career to her. Solange is back with When I Get Home, a follow up to her opus A Seat At The Table. Schoolboy Q gets extra violent, Karen O and Danger Mouse are Lux Prima, The Lasso is hip-hop’s Brian Eno and more. Rest in power to the funky diabetic.
