"Butter" is Phife's greatest solo song, by far. It would be difficult to sound bad on the track, which features a sample that can only be described as ingenious, but Phife rises above and beyond the occasion and delivers funny, engaging verses about trifling honeys and the ups and downs of the playa lifestyle. He never sounded so animated and witty on his own again.
