Phife Dawg to release posthumous single

Associated Press Associated Press 4/04/2016

A new single by Phife Dawg, who died last month, is coming out on Wednesday, with portions of the proceeds going to charity.

The late hip-hop artist's wife Deisha and manager Dion Liverpool announced Monday that Nutshell will debut on Beats 1 Radio and will be available on iTunes. A video for the song will be unveiled at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.

Nutshell is a track from the album, Give Thanks, that Phife Dawg had been working on at the time of his death.

The family is donating 50 per cent of the proceeds to the American Diabetes Association and the National Kidney Foundation. Phife died last month at age 45 from complications of diabetes. His best known songs with A Tribe Called Quest included Scenario and Bonita Applebum.
