tribute to A Tribe Called Quest legend Phife Dawg, who died last week, releases his new album Terrace Martin Velvet Portraits.
The 14-track project serves as a follow-up to Terrace’s 2014 release,
Times. Unfortunately, Velvet Portraits doesn’t feature Terrace’s Jazz remix of “Alright,” but it does feature his single “ Valdez Off Crenshaw.”
Velvet Portraits also boasts production contributions by some of our generation’s greatest musicians: Thundercat, Kamasi Washington, and Robert Glasper.
