ATCQ Honouring Phife Dawg Today

A Tribe Called Quest are honouring Phife Dawg at St Albans Memorial Park in Queens, New York today at 10:30am EST (3.30pm London time) with an event, billed as 'The Celebration of Phife'. The Hip Hop group issued a statement on their website inviting fans to commemorate his life alongside them saying:

 

"To all our loving fans: Please meet us at St Albans Park in Queens, NY on April 4th at 10:30am. The first 200 fans to arrive will receive something very special!"

 

Fellow A Tribe Called Quest member Jarobi White started a facebook petition to have the park renamed after Phife saying:

 

"Things I want for Phife. 
Sayres Ave from 180st to Merrick Blvd renamed Malik "Phife Dawg" Taylor Ave.
St Albans park renamed
Malik "Phife Dawg" Taylor park (aka Tha Phiferdome) lol
And most importantly....

 

His likeness on the mural in St Albans.

 

Help me accomplish these things in his name.
Start a petition. I don't know. Something ...
"

 

Fans started a petition to have the park renamed, and it currently has over 7,000 supporters out of the necessary 10,000.
