Legendary Hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest hits No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with their new album, We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service (Stream).

ATCQ is currrently on Epic Records and earned approximately 135,ooo units sold in 1 week, according to Nielsen Music. This marked their second #1 album, following Beats, Rhymes and Life, that came out 20 years ago (Aug 17, 1996).

Too put the cherry on top of this beautifully made sundae, New York City wanted to honor the life of Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor by co-naming Linden Boulevard, Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor Way at the 192nd intersection in Queens, NYC. Many people came out to help honor and celebrate, such as ATCQ co-members Q-Tip and Jarobi White, (not sure where DJ Ali Shaheed Huhammed was) extended family/musicians Busta Rhymes and Consequence, rapper Cormega, DJ/Host with Hot 97 and ESPN Peter Rosenberg, of course Phife’s family, friends, and loyal fans. DJ J.Period was also on the street but he had the honor within an honor to DJ the naming ceremony.

DJ’s also posted via social media to spread the word and express their feeling about it.

Phife also would’ve turned 46 years old yesterday (Nov 20th), so we’re sending a huge Happy birthday Phife to the heavens!!
