Biz Markie is still alive, despite reports that he passed away last night (June 30th). Several blogs reported that the rap icon passed away after struggling with diabetes and other health issues for years but The Daily Mail reported that Biz is still “alive and in hospice care.”
Reporter Brandon 'Scoop B' Robinson tweeted last night (June 30th), that the family says that Biz has “significant brain damage” and unfortunately “may not make it through the weekend.”
Roland Martin also tweeted that he spoke to Biz's family and he is still alive.
The rapper suffered a stroke while being hospitalized for complications with Type 2 diabetes in late 2020.
