Beats Per Millennium - Phife Dawg gets new kidney

Phife Dawg gets new kidney

The funky diabetic himself has a new lease on life. Phife Dawg, of A Tribe Called Quest, has had diabetes for nearly 20 years. He was put on dialysis in 2000 and has experienced dramatic weight loss and a loss of energy while performing. He’s been waiting for a kidney for two years. After a successful surgery, Phife is reportedly full of energy. This opens the door to a Tribe reunion, as Q-Tip himself has said the full reunion would have to wait until Phife’s health improves. Well, it improved! Reunion album! Now!
