Royal Bey

Biz Markie, the legendary, beloved Hip Hop pioneer, passed away last night due to complications from a stroke that he suffered late last year. He was diagnosed with Diabetes in 2011 and was initially hospitalized for this reason. He was in a Baltimore hospital when he passed. 

Biz was known as the “Clown Prince Of Hip Hop” because of his talent for making his music into a comedic experience. When you think of Biz, you think of fun, high energy, and good times. He is best known for his mega-hit single “Just A Friend,” a Top 40 single in 1989 that peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

Biz is truly missed by anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting him, to all of those he’s mentored over the years, friends, family, and fans all around the world.

Rest In Power King!
