Another loss for the music industry.
On Tuesday, it was reported that rapper Phife Dawg had tragically passed away. He was 45 years old.
The Can I Kick It artist was best known for being a member of the iconic rap group A Tribe Called Quest. Unfortunately, it's been said that the industry vet had struggled with his health for years as he suffered from type 1 diabetes.
In fact, Phife (whose real name was Malik Isaac Taylor) even had a kidney transplant back in 2008. So sad!
Alongside Q-Tip and DJ/producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Phife was a MAJOR pioneer for hip hop. The ATCQ member's presence in the music scene will greatly will be missed.
