Following Phife Dawg’s death, fans petitioned for Linden Boulevard, a road running through Brooklyn and the band’s native Queens, New York, to be renamed after the group.
The street was referenced in a number of their songs, including “Check the Rhime,” and they shot the music video for the single outside Nu-Clear Cleaners, a dry cleaning business on the road back in 1991. Now a group of fans have submitted plans to local council member, Daneek Miller to create a mural on the side of the building as a permanent tribute to the band.
According to TMZ, the tribute is expected to be green-lit in the coming weeks. Miller tells the media outlet that the paperwork was submitted last month, and nobody has objected the mural thus far.
