Malik Izaak Taylor[1] (November 20, 1970 – March 22, 2016     ), known professionally as Phife Dawg (or simply Phife), was an American rapper and a member of the group A Tribe Called Quest with high school classmates Q-Tip and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (and for a short time Jarobi White).

This is an original 12×12 inch painting intended as a memorial piece as part of my “Now That’s What I Call Garfield” a collection of Garfield scenes with old school hip hop lyrics superimposed over the original words. Available on my Facebook page $100 original, $25 for print.but-on-stage-call-me-dynomutt

This is hand painted using acrylic, spray paint and paint markers and some stencil work. The cassette tape stencils were hand cut by me.
