Support Builds For “A Tribe Called Quest Boulevard” In Queens, NY


(AllHipHop News) There is powerful movement toward changing the name of a Queens street to honor the legacy of A Tribe Called Quest and Phife Dawg.

Last week, Phife Dawg, a founding member of the iconic group, died due to complications with diabetes.
Tee Smif, one of the organizers, told AllHipHop exclusively that they were already pushing for this change, but Phife’s passing makes the timing more critical. Smif also said that Talib Kweli was already in support of it and roughly 2,200 people had signed a petition at the time of this writing.

The petition to Queens Council Member I. Daneek Miller goes as follows:

Sadly, this week it was reported that Malik “Phife Dawg” Isaac Taylor of the Iconic Hip Hop group A Tribe Called Quest has died. We are requesting the cooperation of Council Member I. Deneek Miller and Speaker Mark-Viverito to support our new proposed co-naming of Linden Boulevard between 192 Street and 193 Street to: A Tribe Called Quest Boulevard.

Please help us by signing this petition and bringing awareness to this cause. We’re very close at making this a reality but need your help!

Signed,

HHDG – Members of The Hip Hop Discussion Group
&
LeRoy McCarthy

    Beats and Rhymes was a great documentary on these guys. The feud between Q-Tip and Phife was clearly a misunderstanding. Nevertheless Rest in Power to Phife.

  • Cool gesture..but should have been done…again waiting til someone does to pay homage smh

    “Where do you live?”

    Property value would skyrock just because of the name though.
