Watch Kanye West Deliver The Most Kanye Eulogy Ever During Phife Dawg's Memorial

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Kanye WestSad Sad

Say what you will about Kanye, but he certainly has a way with words.

As you probably remember, A Tribe Called Quest lost one of its founding members late last month when Phife Dawg died due to complications with diabetes at age 45.

The rapper's friends have already spoken out about his passing, but it wasn't until Tuesday that they were finally able to formally say goodbye during his memorial.

A number of Phife's famous colleagues made their way out to the New York City service — including Lauryn Hill, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, The Roots, and L.A. Reid – but it was Kanye West who had the biggest impact thanks to his lengthy eulogy.

In typical Kanye fashion, he made a few jokes — specifically about Hot 97's DJ Peter Rosenberg bringing up Led Zeppelin on Phife's day — but this time, his inability to censor himself came across as charming instead of patronizing.

We're sure Phife would have greatly appreciated the speech, Ye.

Ch-ch-check out Kanye's eulogy for Phife in full (below)!!!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadKristin CavallariRehabFamilyAlcohol

So sad.

This is truly tragic.

Kristin Cavallari's brother Michael was recently found dead in Utah, after he was missing for about two weeks. And now, sources are saying that the 30-year-old was hoping to make a big step in his battle with alcohol addiction and mental health issues.

The brother of the Laguna Beach alum was supposedly "really turning his life around" before he disappeared, and was even talking about going to rehab.

An insider revealed to People:

"Most recently, Mike felt he wasn't able to maintain sobriety alone and needed to go into a rehab facility. He told his mom this as soon as he was released from his detainment."

The confidante confessed that The Hills star's struggling sibling had been even working with his father, Dennis, in real estate development.

The source also added that Michael's family is in the process of planning his memorial service. But first, they need to figure out when Kristin's baby girl will be able to travel safely.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.
