    Speculations spread yesterday claiming that the famous rapper Biz Markie, known as the “Clown Prince of Hip-Hop,” had tragically passed away due to unspecified health issues. This false news led to an outpouring of sorrow from his supporters on Twitter, along with messages of sympathy for his loved ones. However, contrary to the rumors, Biz Markie is alive, and those close to him urge everyone to refrain from spreading misinformation about his well-being.

    In a statement to Rolling Stone, Biz Markie’s representative debunked the rumors by stating, “The news of Biz Markie’s passing is not true. Biz is still under medical care, surrounded by professionals who are working hard to provide the best healthcare possible.”

    Though Biz Markie is not deceased, he is currently hospitalized. While the exact nature of his medical condition remains undisclosed, it seems serious enough to necessitate ongoing medical attention. The supportive messages and gestures of care extended to his family are acknowledged, even if based on inaccurate information.

    Expressing gratitude for the expressions of love and admiration received, Biz Markie’s representative issued a plea for continued thoughts and prayers during this challenging period.

    Biz Markie has faced health challenges in the past. In 2010, he was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes, a condition he took seriously and addressed with significant lifestyle changes. Reflecting on his health journey, Biz Markie shared with ABC News in 2014, “I wanted to live. Since I have to be a diabetic, If I didn’t make the changes, it was going to make the diabetes worse. I’m trying to get off [the diabetes meds]. The way you gotta do it is lose the weight. I’m off half my meds, I just got to get off the rest … [The doctors] said I could lose my feet. They said I could lose body parts. A lot of things could happen.”
