Reporter Drops Tribe Lyrics in Phife Dawg Tribute

Phife Dawg

Phife Dawg

My all-time favorite MC, Phife Dawg, of a Tribe Called Quest passed away on Wednesday. He died of complications from diabetes. He was only 45.

If you’ve ever watched Michael Rapaport’s documentary on Tribe, Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest, you know a little about Phife’s battle with the disease.

Couple that with Q-Tip’s massive ego and we got precious little material from the greatest hip-hop group of all time.

All of this is unfortunate.

This, on the other hand, is pretty dope.

WSB-TV (Atlanta) traffic reporter Mark Arum sprinkled all kinds of Tribe song lyrics into his traffic report today as tribute to Phife. Take a look.
