The late Phife Dawg, of A Tribe Called Quest, is being remembered in a curious manner. This will be by having the intersection where the aforementioned rap group formed renamed after Phife.
Phife’s management told press, “Just wanted to let every one know that the New York mayors office just called me and said the mayor is signing the bill to co-name Linden Blvd @192 to Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor way on 8/3 at 10am at City Hall, Lower Manhattan”.
When the late rapper died in March, A Tribe Called Quest released a statement stating, “Our hearts are heavy. We are devastated. This is something we weren’t prepared for although we all know that life is fleeting”.
“It was no secret about his health and his fight. But the fight for his joy and happiness gave him everything he needed. The fight to keep his family happy, his soul happy and those around him happy, gave him complete and unadulterated joy… until he heeded his fathers call”.
He was previously honoured via a new song courtesy of Terrace Martin, a traffic report, and The Celebration Of Phife Dawg memorial.
