    Nooo. One of my favorite artists of all time. I've been listening to ATCQ for many years now and still am. They've been my life's soundtrack. I like Phife more than Tip in both lyrics and delivery. But they are the greatest together. RIP, Phife.

    Just painful news for all who were following hip hop in the 90s/started following hip hop in the 90s or just went back to listen to the greats.
    The dude impacted a LOT of people!

    May he RIP. :(

    Really terrible. Even knowing about his health struggles it didn't seem like he should die this early.

    Yup, this one rips the heart. I was always hoping for a real reunion but always had a feeling his Diabetes would somehow keep this from happening, but dying so young. RIP Phife Dawg, from the Zulu Nation.

    Sad to hear especially at such a young age.

    It's going to be a Tribe marathon on Spotify at work today.
