If you don’t know by now, Malik Taylor (aka. Phife Dawg) who so happens to be one of the founder members of ‘A Tribe Called Quest’ died Wednesday at the age of 45. The impact was felt not just in the hip hop community but even places you couldn’t even fathom.
Scott Van Pelt of ESPN is an unabashed Tribe fan and even had Phife Dawg make appearances on his new late night SportsCenter show a few months back. Phife was a huge sports fan. Of the many tributes I have ever in the last 48 hours showing respect to this legend, Van Pelt may have put the icing on the cake with his.
Rest In Paradise to truly one of the greats and most influential minds in hip hop. Thank you Phife Dawg!
