WSB-TV Atlanta traffic reporter Mark Arum killed this.
Rapper Malik Taylor, known to fans as Phife Dawg from the critically acclaimed A Tribe Called Quest, died today after complications from diabetes. Many of hip-hop’s biggest artists took to social media to pay respects to the beloved rapper.
So incredibly sad to hear the Great Phife Dawg of Tribe Called Quest has passed away at only 45 yrs. GREAT MC. Sincere Love and Respect.

To honor the late, great rapper, a WSB-TV Atlanta traffic reporter, Mark Arum, tributed Phife Dawg’s best lyrics—skillfully weaving references into his traffic update.
Some of the best references included:
“More hits than the Braves or the Yankees”
“Are things ludicrously speedy or infectious with the slow-mo?”
“Track record’s longer than a DC-20 aircraft”
“Do that, do that, do do that that that”
“Tell your mother, tell your father, send a telegram”
“One for the treble, two for the bass, you know the style”
And to further celebrate Phife Dawg and A Tribe Called Quest, check out the band’s Beats, Rhymes, and Life doc.
