    We have lost a number of musical icons this year and "Phife Dawg" was every bit a legend. His nimble rythems help propel "A Tribe Called Quest" into success that way surpassed the " Hip Hop" label. They enjoyed mainstream success not because of a one hit wonder. They were celebrated in many genres for a simple reason, talent. They redefined what hip hop could achieve musically. Rest Easy, "Phife Dawg".
