Phife Dawg’s untimely passing has effected many musical souls around the globe. But his legacy will live on through the music of A Tribe Called Quest and Phife Dawg’s lyrics.

Several rappers, celebrities, and fans have expressed their condolences and gratitude for the rapper born Malik Taylor; with artists and fans paying their respects via social media since the news was reported. Mac Miller dropped a tribute song for the 45-year old emcee; while Kendrick Lamar led his fans in chanting Phife’s name during a show in Australia. With so many fans quoting some of the Five Foot Assassin’s most popular lines, arguably the best tribute thus far has been by WSB-TV (Atlanta, GA) reporter Mark Arum, in this morning’s traffic report.

Watch above as Arum cleverly inserts classic Tribe lyrics into his live broadcast. And also catch anchor Fred Blankenship following along by also stating some lyrics in conversation back and fourth with Arum. Phife Diggy Dawg was known for his catchy one-liners and pop culture references, and the news team manages to work quite a few into the broadcast in tribute to the fallen hip-hop star.

“Tell your mother, tell your father, send a telegram!!” because more newscast’s need to be as entertaining as this one.

Forever live Phife Dawg. R.I.P.
