Remembering Phife Dawg “The Five Foot Assassin”

Musical preference and opinions are pushed aside today as we all come together to mourn the loss of hip-hop icon, Phife Dawg. A member of the notorious rap group, A Tribe Called Quest, Phife leaves behind a rhythmic legacy nothing short of groundbreaking. Having suffered from serious Type 1 diabetes most of his life, the star was pronounced dead this morning for reasons unknown, at the mere age of 45.  This sudden loss has shaken listeners on a global scale and left Tribe fans attending to their social media accounts where many have expressed their condolences.


Today, regardless of ones genre preference to industry status there’s one thing for sure- Phife will forever live on through his music. RIP to the #fivefootassassin
