  1. Rapper Phife Dawg, a member of rap pioneers A Tribe Called Quest, has died at the age of 45.

    The musician had been struggling with ill health and diabetes for several years, and received a kidney transplant from his wife in 2008.

    Born Malik Isaac Taylor in 1970, he co-founded the philosophically-focused rap group in 1985 with his classmates Q-Tip and Ali Shaheed Muhammad.

    Their biggest hit came in 1991, with the single Can I Kick It?

    The band recently reformed to perform the song on Jimmy Fallon's US chat show, as they marked the 25th anniversary of their debut album People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm.
