Remembering Phife Dawg
“Now here’s a funky introduction of how nice I am. Tell your mother, tell your father, send a telegram.” Spoken by one of Hip-Hop’s greatest MC’s, Phife Dawg. Last Tuesday Hip-Hop legend, Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest passed away. At the age of 45 Phife Dawg lost a long battle to complications from Diabetes (EOnline.com). A Tribe Called Quest is an old school hip-hop group best known for songs like “Can I kick It” and “I Left My Wallet In El Segundo”. Their relaxing mix of talking, rapping and singing in songs, made for the perfect music to hang out and chill to. As Phife would say, “Now if you say my style is wack that’s where you’re dead wrong” and we would have to agree!
