Just before the 2014 Dilla Day Detroit lineup was announced, Phife Dawg released “Dear Dilla,” a touching tribute. After all, in his solo career and earlier, with A Tribe Called Quest, the 5 Foot Assassin was instrumental to getting Jay Dee placements. Since the event last week, Phife Diggy drops the video—featuring the Sports “Phanatic” draped in Detroit Tigers gear, eating donuts, and other touchstones to the Dilla legacy.

This video warms the heart, while the song nods the Head.
