As part of the pioneering rap group A Tribe Called Quest and their extended Native Tongues family, Phife Dawg helped usher in a whole new style of intelligent hip-hop. Born Malik Taylor, on November 20, 1970, Phife grew up in Queens, New York, where he spent his childhood writing poetry and eventually rapping at school and in his neighborhood whenever the opportunity was available. Along with high-school classmates Q-Tip (Jonathan Davis) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Phife founded A Tribe Called Quest, that grew into a legendary decade-long career. Phife died at the age of 45 due to a longstanding battle with diabetes. We celebrate his life and music with this first annual Birthday Requiem!
This must-attend event will feature Live music from DJ Mighty Joe (@otherguysmusic) and a reflection session hosted by DC's own D.L. Chandler
