As the world continues to mourn the death of hip-hop legend and lyrical assassin Phife Dawg memories of the Queens MC's best bars keeps his legacy alive. Now that Phife is no longer with us British journalist Tim Westwood decided to dig back in the crates and pay homage to the Tribe Called Quest MC. Westwood found a 1999 freestyle of Phife which he aired on Thursday (March 24) for his “Throwback Thursday” series.

The bar filled session finds Phife flexing his lyrical prowess alongside Madlib and Wildchild. Never one to disappoint on the freestyle tip, Phife raps off the dome for more than two minutes about traveling around the world, reppin’ Trinidad and shouting out his uncanny ability to freestyle.

Phife, who battled diabetes for a majority of his life, passed away from unrevealed causes on Tuesday (March 22) at the age of 45. Since then fans, the music industry, his peers and family have been sharing their condolences, memories and more. On Wednesday, Mac Miller, who is a major ATCQ fan, also paid homage to Phife with his own remix of the classic "5 Foot Assassin."

According to reports Phife was planning on releasing two new projects in 2016, so new music from the late great could still be on the way.

"Malik was our loving husband, father, brother and friend. We love him dearly. How he impacted all our lives will never be forgotten. His love for music and sports was only surpassed by his love of God and family,” his family wrote in an official statement regarding his passing. Although Phife is often debated as one of the best rappers to do it, through his music and philanthropy he will continue to be in our hearts forever.
