Last week we lost one of the greats. We grew up to his music and rhymes. Phife Dawg from the group A Tribe Called Quest recently passed away after a long battle with diabetes. His life impacted Hip Hop in a monumental way.
Phife Dawg, Q-Tip, Jerobi and producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad founded the group A Tribe Called Quest. They defined our youth and in my views they were Hip Hop. Their poetry and layered production on songs like “Award Tour” and “Electric Relaxation” gave them critical acclaim.
