NEW YORK — A New York City street corner is now named the Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor Way.
The late rapper from the group A Tribe Called Quest was honored Saturday at the intersection of 192nd Street and Linden Boulevard in the St. Albans neighborhood in Queens.
That stretch of the boulevard bears a sign with the name of the Queens native. He died earlier this year at age 45 following complications from diabetes.
The rapper's bandmates, Q-Tip and Jarobi White, joined his family for the ceremony on the street corner where he and his friends spent many hours, often rapping.
Last week, A Tribe Called Quest released their final album with Phife Dawg.
