NEW YORK (AP) - A new single by Phife Dawg, who died last month, is coming out Tuesday, with portions of the proceeds going to charity.

The late hip-hop artist’s wife Deisha and manager Dion Liverpool announced Monday that “Nutshell” will debut Tuesday on Beats 1 Radio and will be available on iTunes. A video for the song will be unveiled Tuesday night at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. “Nutshell” is a track from the album, “Give Thanks,” that he had been working on at the time of his death.

The family is donating 50 percent of the proceeds to the American Diabetes Association and the National Kidney Foundation. Phife died last month at age 45 from complications of diabetes. His best known songs with A Tribe Called Quest included “Scenario” and “Bonita Applebum.”
