Earlier this year, the hip-hop world lost a legend when Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest passed away. Over the weekend, the city of New York payed homage to the late great by naming Linden Boulevard and 192nd St in Queens after him. It's now called Malik 'Phife Dawg' Taylor Way. Watch footage from the unveiling ceremony below.

"I see some of my dudes who I've actually logged mad hours with on this corner, in front of this store," Jarobi White from A Tribe Called Quest said. "It's a dope thing. Like people get murals and tributes to them all over the place, but to have a mural on the very block, the very street that we walked every day? Wrote rhymes up and down this block, battle people, have people come from other neighborhoods to battle me and Phife—you know, all kinds of stuff."
