Phife sprinkled a little ESPN commentary in between tracks too. He congratulated LeBron on his first NBA title and spoke on  Steve Nash trade rumors. If you know anything about Phife you know he is a sports fanatic. The Five Footer ended the night by rocking out to Buggin Out and giving a small talk on the meaning of Hip-Hop and the unity that it brings. Definitely a night I'll never forget...
