Biz Markie passed away yesterday at the age of 57!

Rapper Biz Markie has passed away, his manager Jenni Izumi confirmed to CNN. He was 57 years old.

She said the musician has touched many with his music during his 35-year career, and he was also known for his sense of humor.

Real name Marcell Hall, Markie was born in New York City, where he began making music in the 1980s.

He attracted a lot of attention in the early 90s when he was on trial for a sample for which musician Gilbert O’Sullivan sued him. Markie lost the lawsuit, and referred to it as a joke in the name of his 1993 album - All Samples Cleared.
