NOW I understand diabetes is no joke, something to take seriously.

Hip hop legends keep passing away :(

Rip Biz Markie, Double K, Gift of Gab, MF Doom, Dmx, Shock G, Black Rob
13437483, I know

Still ain't over Shock and MF DOOM(top 5), but hearing the podcast, "What had happened was" first season gave me so much respect for Biz's ability to float through boroughs on some hip hop adventurer shit back in the day. Much respect.
13437502, MF Doom died in 2020.

Some details that I personally had forgotten.
13437516, Rest In Power To Biz Markie
Posted by Dj Joey Joe, Sun Jul-18-21 09:59 AM
When I heard the news yesterday I was hoping it was another one of those "internet posting false rumors" type of situations since they was posting about his death a month ago that was false; but nope he really couldn't get his diabetes under control and passed away from complications of it.....DAMN.

Rest In Power to the diabolical Biz Markie. :( :( :(

13437518, Rest in power. Biz & phife dying due to diabetes complications
Posted by dillinjah, Sun Jul-18-21 01:05 PM

13437519, damn. RIP. knew it was coming but it still hits hard.

peace & blessings,



I'm an advocate for working smarter, not harder. If you just
focus on working hard you end up making someone else rich and
not having much to show for it. (c) mad

One of my fondest musical memories is watching the video for Just a Friend. Probably a huge reason why I got into Hip Hop. He seemed like a great person too.
13437548, Fuck 2021. RIP to a king of the game.
