Wiz Khalifa Pays Tribute To Phife Dawg In “Electric Relaxation”

Smoke one for Phife Dawg.

Many have sampled Ronnie Foster’s “Mystic Brew” but I think it’s safe to say A Tribe Called Quest did it the most justice in “Electric Relaxation”.  After news broke last Wednesday (March 23) that hip-hop lost an icon, Phife Dawg from ATCQ, everyone from Kobe Bryant to Kendrick Lamar made sure to let the public know how important he was to us.  One being Wiz Khalifa, decided to express his feelings on his cover of “Electric Relaxation”.

Wiz raps about his first love: Mary j, mixes in Phife’s original verses, and keeps the same dope vibe felt in the original song.  Everyone can appreciate this track and I’m sure Phife is smiling down appreciating it too.  Listen above.

Wiz Khalifa speaks on creative process behind Converse deal on Sway in the Morning.
