RAPPER Biz Markie is “in hospice with significant brain damage.”
Fans of the 57-year-old called the “Just a Friend” hitmaker’s situation “brutal.”
Despite reports that the rapper has died, reporter Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson took to Twitter on Wednesday night to state that the reports her false.
However, he added that the singer has “significant brain damage.”
“My source talked to Biz TODAY. Per his wife, Biz HAS NOT passed away. Please stop responding to non-credible sources. This hurts the family, friends and fans.”
The Just A Friend singer – who was born as Marcel Hall – has dealt with health complications in the past.
Back in July 2020, he was hospitalized for several weeks with complications from Type 2 diabetes.
TMZ reported he was treated in the Maryland area for a serious illness related to his diabetes, while the outlet clarified his hospitalization was not related to Covid-19.
A rep for the musician said at the time: “He is receiving the best care from an amazing team of medical professionals and we remain positive about the outcome.”
