#RIPPhifeDawg: A Tribe Called Quest Boulevard Might Just Come To Fruition As Petition Approaches 5,000 Signatures

Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, A Tribe Called Quest

A Petition To Dedicate A Street Name To A Tribe Called Quest Has Almost Reached It’s Goal

A TMZ report is stating that after the death of Phife Dawg last week, A Tribe Called Quest might just get the honor that many fans believe they so richly deserve…

Phife Dawg is one key step closer to getting a permanent tribute in his hometown — renaming the street he rapped about all the time … A Tribe Called Quest Boulevard.

After Phife died last week, a petition was started to encourage city council members to co-name Linden Blvd (represent, represent) in Queens. It’s already approaching its goal of 5,000 signatures.

Sources involved in the campaign tell us they crossed another hurdle — getting Phife’s family to sign off on the plan. We’re told NYC requires such approval before putting a celeb name on a street sign. Also, Councilman Daneek Miller says he’s fully behind the plan because “A Tribe Called Quest is fundamentally important to the history of Queens.”

We look forward to this coming to fruition.
