Eminem has yet to express his sympathies following the loss of rapper Biz Markie, who died on Friday at the age of 57.
The rapper’s wife, Tara Hall, was said to have held his hand as he took his final breath, according to celebrity website TMZ. Biz died at 6:25 p.m. Friday in a Baltimore hospital, according to TMZ.
The nursing staff was there to encourage his family, according to the story, telling them how tough he was during his battle.
Immediately after the tragic news broke online, tributes poured in. Snoop Dogg and a number of other musicians paid their respects to Biz Markie.
Fans of Eminem may remember him for his Godzilla video from last year, which the Detroit rapper enjoyed seeing.
After its release in 2021, the successful song was covered by a number of amateur rappers. After Eminem posted the challenge on social media, hundreds of individuals joined in.
Rather than attempting to rap the song, Biz Markie hilariously lip-synced Eminem’s Godzilla, leaving his followers in stitches.
The “Lose Yourself” singer, who frequently uses his social media platforms to express sorrow when a friend or acquaintance passes away, has yet to respond to Biz Markie’s death.
Fans of the late rapper hoped that Eminem would send out a tweet or post a homage to him on Instagram, but many were disappointed when Slim Shaddy remained silent for hours after Biz died.
