Hip hop woke up to the news this morning, with many tributes arising all over social media, with one even making its way into a standard traffic news reports.
Mark Arum, of Channel 2 Action News, was one of countless many others vocalizing the influence the co-founder of Tribe had in his life, sharing on his Facebook, “I am stunned. And shook. Most times I have to do a mic check I quote my man Phife: ‘Microphone Check, 1,2, what is this? The five-foot assassin with the roughneck business!’”
Once on air, the reporter took to the mic himself, incorporating lines from “Award Tour” into his segment, and it's very much on point.
