Remembering Miles & Phife with Don Cheadle & Bobbito Garcia

Mar 31, 2016, 06:06 PM

Today we pay homage to two departed legends of music. First, we have Don Cheadle, star and director of the Miles Davis biopic “Miles Ahead.” Then, DJ Bobbito Garcia remembers his friend Malik Taylor, AKA Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest who passed away last week. Dave’s ‘Choice Words’ are call for NBA Commissioner to move the 2017 All-Star weekend away from Charlotte in light of a recent North Carolina anti-trans law, and a somber ‘Just Stand Up’ goes to Dave’s departed friend Kevin Turner. The former Alabama and NFL running back lived with dignity and strength before succumbing to ALS a week ago.Special thanks: Mike Sheils, Simona Noce, Maya Anand, Donna Daniels, Kathryn Tyus-Adair, Jennifer Allen, Mike Nasella, WPFW 89.3 FM.—‘Miles Ahead’ film: http://sonyclassics.com/milesaheadZirin: The NBA Needs to Move the 2017 All-Star Game FromCharlotte.
