Social Media Pays Tribute To The Legendary Biz Markie

Social Media Pays Tribute To The Legendary Biz Markie

Last night we reported on the passing of the legendary rapper Biz Markie. 

His death was confirmed by his wife, Tara. She posted on her Instagram account, “A GOOD heart stopped beating this evening… and I was there for the last one….Biz Fought till the end, like the true legend he is. Biz passed his strength to me during his transition while holding his hand. He knows I’ll need it to carry on the rest of my life without him. Rest King Biz! #strongisland #bizmarkie #theladyandthelegend #adidas #kingBiz
