Biz Markie is alive, despite reports he died.

On Wednesday evening, rumors circulated online that the 57-year-old rap legend had died. However, his representatives told The Daily Mail that he is still alive and receiving medical treatment.

“Biz is still under medical care, surrounded by professionals who are working hard to provide the best healthcare possible,” read the statement. “Biz’s wife and family are touched by the outpouring of love and admiration from his friends, peers and fans alike.”

Journalist Roland Martin also denied the erroneous reports after speaking with his source, an “industry legend” who was talking and texting with Markie’s wife, who confirmed that the “Just a Friend” rapper is alive.

Biz Markie, born Marcel Hall, has been in hospice care and dealing with health complications in recent years. In late 2020, he suffered a stroke while being hospitalized for complications with Type 2 diabetes.
