Hip-Hop is still mourning the loss of Biz Markie, born Marcel Theo Hall. The iconic rapper's funeral service is set for Monday, August 2, in Long Island and the Reverend Al Sharpton will deliver the eulogy.

Recently, an erroneously reported news story caused rumors of Biz Markie's death to spread while the rapper is alive but unfortunately not well. Big Daddy Kane recently took to social media to take media to task for moving too fast and not considering the ramifications it can have on the fans, friends and family of those involved.

Fortunately, a story about Biz Markie's death is not true. Per the iconic rapper's wife, the Biz is still alive.
