(Radio.com) MC Phife Dawg passed away earlier this year and this past weekend Phife's life and legacy were celebrated when a NYC street corner was named for him over the weekend.

Malik 'Phife Dawg" Taylor Way can be found at the intersection of 192nd Street in the Saint Albans neighborhood of Queens. Saturday's naming ceremony drew Quest Tribesmen Q-Tip and Jarobi White, as well as Busta Rhymes, radio DJs, city officials, relatives and hundreds of fans.

Phife's widow Desha Head Taylor told Billboard that the section of Queens occupies a special place in their love story. 'When we first met, we flew into JFK, and there was always a route we had to take. We had to stop by Saint Albans park, and stop by 192 and Linden. He always brought me by grandma's house, no matter how many times we came to New York," she said. 'He absolutely loved this neighborhood, and this community, and the people he met here growing up."
