R.I.P. Phife Dawg

Today, the Hip Hop world got news of the death of Malik Isaac "Phife Dawg" Taylor, a.k.a Phife the Five Footer, a.k.a. The Five Foot Assassin, a.k.a...well you get the point. He was a member of the undeniably legendary group A Tribe Called Quest, which consisted of himself, Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi White; all of whom were high school classmates. Phife is known for his bragadocious, hard-hitting, yet smooth rhymes. In my personal opinion he has the best bars of the group. In his honor, I'll be listening to Tribe all day. Here are a few songs where Phife is on point for you to "Check the Rhime."
