The Playlist: A Tribe Called Quest #RIPPhifeDawg

Waking up this morning to learn that A Tribe Called Quest member Malik Isaac Taylor, better known by his stage name Phife Dawg had passed away was sort of surreal. You know that you are getting older when the musicians that you grew up with start passing away. A Tribe Called Quest has left a legacy in hip hop that is matched by few. Their first single “I left my wallet in El Segundo” had be hooked as a kid with it’s melodic bass line and awesome rhymes. Losing a part of this hip hop supergroup is not just a loss for hip hop, but a loss to music as a whole.
