The praises for the late great Phife Dawg keep rolling in. Last night (March 25), on Q-Tip's Abstract Radio show on Beats 1, the A Tribe Called Quest front man used the air time to pay homage to his partner in rhyme. During the two-hour set he played cuts from Tribe's classic catalog as well as pre-recorded memos from rappers like Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Chuck D and others paying their respects to the beloved rapper.

Andre 3K reflected on growing up and vibing to ATCQ, “A Tribe Called Quest is everything, everything to me," he said. "There will not be no OutKast without A Tribe Called Quest. It was everything to me in high school, just listening to Q-tip run the verses. And I remember being really interested in vocabulary. He actually made me want to know more about words and use them as tools. Like, words that you may have not even know before. He made it actually cool to use those words."

K. Dot also chimed in for the Five Foot Assassin. "Me being one of the new cats, all I can remember is either listening to gangster rap or Low End Theory. So it’s only right that I pay homage to Phife and Tribe," he said before revealing his fondest memories of Phife were from the song "Scenario."

Public Enemy general Chuck D also put in some kind words. “Full-out salute to my brother Phife. Little brother Phife Dawg, a hip-hop rap world warrior," he said. "He lived and breathed hip-hop. The man’s a social narrator along with the world-legendary all-time A Tribe Called Quest. What aa team along with Q-Tip, along with Ali Shaheed Muhammad, along with Jarobi. Team player in the game and really from Queens, these kings. Even had the first lady salute as well. Shout out to my man Phife, the warrior. Peace. A Tribe Called Quest forever.”
