Busta Rhymes Posts Tribute For The Late Phife Dawg

When legends pass on it affects an immeasurable number of people who grieve in a variety of ways. When Phife Dawg, a founding member of A Tribe Called Quest and cornerstone of hip-hop, passed away this past week from diabetes, fans and colleagues did just that. A traffic reporter cleverly dropped Phife mentions in his broadcast, Scott Van Pelt told a tale of them performing together on his ESPN show and The New Day, a charismatic trio of WWE Superstars, even referenced “Can I Kick It?” while performing in Brooklyn on Monday.

While all of these surely tug at heartstrings, they can’t really compare to the statements made by people who were close to Phife. While his Instagram currently holds multiple tributes to the Five Foot Assassin, Busta Rhymes posted a touching message about his relationship with Phife Dawg late last week.

White Students Learn “The Streets” at the University

Folks in the ghetto always watch the careless: any opportunity to exploit small mistakes gets the observant ahead. The ghetto mindset transmits through an exclusive circle of students. Doctrines of this knowledge—what we call “street smarts”—may not be known by the average white person. Such may be the case because a majority of the white population lives in relatively comfortable environments. A kid growing up in the ghetto cannot believe how loosely his suburban friend’s door swings open. However, due to the placement of prominent universities in the country’s worst ghettoes, white students are finally receiving the knowledge of the ghetto.
