Mac Miller paid homage to Phife Dawg early this morning with an edit that melds parts of a freestyle from The Arsenio Hall Show with bits of "1nce Again" (from the Beats, Rhymes, & Life album). The instrumental is a soothing stream of keyboard notes; as the song comes to a close, Phife chants, cause if you ain't yourself/ you end up by your friggin' self. "RIP Phife Dawg," Miller wrote on SoundCloud. "Thank You."
