The Late Phife Dawg Will Have a Street Named After Him

This past March the hip-hop world lost a legendary MC when Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor of A Tribe Called Quest passed away.

According to OkayPlayer, Phife’s management has confirmed New York City will immortalize the late rapper by officially naming a street after him. The Mayor of New York’s office contacted the late rappers management via text message stating “Just wanted to let every one know that the New York mayors office just called me and said the mayor is signing the bill to co-name Linden Blvd @ 192 to Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor way on 8/3 at 10am at City Hall, Lower Manhattan.”

The intersection of Linden Blvd and 192 in Queens is where Phife Dawg and Q-Tip met as children and created A Tribe Called Quest.
