The Hip Hop Community Pays Their Respects To Phife Dawg

“I’m all that and then some, short, dark, and handsome
Bust a nut inside your eye to show you where I come from”

That is one of the earliest punchlines I can remember, this is a big loss for the Hip Hop community. If you’re from the Queens/Long Island area, it’s a huge loss.

Official Statement:

We regret to share the news that on Tuesday March 22nd, 2016, Malik has passed away due to complications resulting from diabetes.

Malik was our loving husband, father, brother and friend. We love him dearly. How he impacted all our lives will never be forgotten. His love for music and sports was only surpassed by his love of God and family.”

Dion Liverpool, his manager adds, “While I mourn the loss of my best friend and brother, I also will celebrate his incredible life and contribution to many people’s ears across the world. Even with all his success, I have never met a person as humble as he. He taught me that maintaining a positive attitude and outlook can conquer anything. Now my brother is resting in greatness. I’m honored to have crossed paths with him. Riddim Kidz 4eva.”

The family asks that their privacy be respected at this difficult time.

Earlier today WSB-TVs Mark Arum and Fred Blankenship paid tribute to the late A Tribe Called Quest rapper Phife Dawg this morning by brilliantly inserting lyrics into the traffic report.

That was very dope and truly thoughtful.

#RIP #PhifeDawg
