The corner of Linden Blvd and 192nd St in Queens, NY was officially renamed to Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor Way this afternoon. The late rapper’s street naming ceremony was attended by Q-Tip, Jarobi White as well as many friends, and family.
I see some of my dudes who I’ve actually logged mad hours with on this corner, in front of this store. It’s a dope thing. Like people get murals and tributes to them all over the place, but to have a mural on the very block, the very street that we walked every day? Wrote rhymes up and down this block, battle people, have people come from other neighborhoods to battle me and Phife—you know, all kinds of stuff. – Jarobi White at street naming ceremony
