It's a sad day when you lose one of the great MCs to ever do it. Malik Isaac Taylor, known to us as Phife Dawg, was an essential part of the golden era of hip hop, lending his voice to classic records alongside Q-Tip in A Tribe Called Quest. The group would release multiple classic albums in the 90s, and although tension divided the band, they'd eventually reunite, most recently on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show. Tracks like "Can I Kick It?," "Check The Rhime," "Scenario," Award Tour," and so many others exist as some of the greatest rap records ever made. 

As we say goodbye to Phife Dawg, it's important to reflect on the incredible impact he and his band had on our culture. Let's remember the Funky Diabetic through some of his most iconic performances on wax.
