He received a kidney from his BLACK WIFE.

But that's not scandalous enough to mention.

You are welcome.

Rest in Peace Phife.

What the hell does his wife being black and giving her HUSBAND a kidney have to do with any fucking thing?
Cleanse your soul this holiday weekend you fucking scrub.

@8:46,

What I am saying is that she risked her life to save his for a long as she could. Given that she only has one kidney now, there are lifelong complications including the inability to have children.

I'm saying all this to say that this woman did what any good wife would do or good human being for that matter. There is no doubt that she prolonged his life.

However, since she was not twerking for the world to see, her contribution to HIS life was not mentioned.

She could not be dragged, thus she was ignored.

And I am sure that you are one of the first to call a Black woman a gold digger and a whore.

Man this is sad... I remember when I really got into hip hop - they were there! I hate the Quest parted ways - hip hop needs them. And now this.

I know some things can't be helped, but people please take care of your bodies. diabetes is a serious issue.

Rest Eternal Malik Turner #RIPPHIFE

So glad to have had you, Tribe 4 ever.

I can't believe this. I love Phife so much and thought he was doing better have the kidney transplant. I just watched that Tribe documentary over the holidays and it made me so sad to see his health struggles, and the beef with Q-Tip. All in all, Phife seemed like a good dude and he was in my opinion the true heart of ATCQ.

Rest in peace bro.

@9:10, you don't get props for being a good father, a good husband, a good mother and wife or even a good person. Reading blogs in this day and age you should know that by now. But thanks for the mention.

RIP Phife

:-( this is sad. I loved ATCQ!!!! I was disappointed in his beef with Qtip. His voice made the track for me..he added the energy. He will be missed. That's when hip hop was it's best. RIP.

Well what do you know, the Di-Dawg, is first up to bat

No holds barred, no time for move faking
Gots to get the loot so I can bring home the bacon
Brothers front, they say the Tribe can't flow
But we've been known to do the impossible like Broadway Joe so
Sleep if you want NyQuil will help you get your Z's, troop
But here's the real scoop
