“Back in the days on the boulevard of Linden.”

Already tied to A Tribe Called Quest thanks to “Check the Rhime,” Linden Boulevard will soon be forever tied to the pioneering rap group.

According to a post on Okayplayer.com, the New York Mayor’s office has confirmed that on Wednesday, the street will be co-named “Malik ‘Phife Dawg’ Way” who died earlier this year.

Specifically, the street will be renamed at the corner of Linden and 192nd Street in Queens, where Phife and Q-Tip met and created Tribe.
