Today, March 23, the great Phife Dawg has passed away.
He was only 45.
Phife dawg was a founding member of the group A Tribe Called Quest with high school classmates Q-Tip and Ali Shaheed Muhammad. He was also known as the "Five Foot Assassin" and "The Five Footer", because he stood at 5 feet
A Tribe Called Quest helped to challenge the "macho posturing" of rap and hip-hop music during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Phife's work has been cited as an influence on Kanye West, Jill Scott, The Roots and Common, while the 1991 album "The Low End Theory" is considered one of the greatest hip-hop albums released
