RIP to one of the most influential MC's in hip hop, Malik Taylor, AKA Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest.
Co-founder of ATCQ in 1985 with Q-Tip and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, his classmates from Queens, New York, A Tribe would go on to become one of the most creative and pioneering groups in hip hop.
Mixing and blending jazz, blues, soul, hip hop and african elements together, ATCQ created a whole new style of hip hop that has gone on to influence artists for years to come.
Phife will forever be remembered as one of the most creative, innovative and smooth MC's to bless the mic.
His opening verse to The Low End Theory's 'Buggin Out' is one of our all time favourites, period.
