Biz Markie, a prominent player in the hip-hop culture, died earlier this summer as a result of complications from Type II diabetes. He died a year after being admitted to the hospital for the same symptoms. Markie was a member of the Juice Crew in New York, which included artists such as Big Daddy Kane, Marley Marl, Roxanne Shante, and Kool G Rap. It was revealed on Thursday, two months after Markie’s death, that the late rapper would be honored with his own street in Patchogue, Long Island.
“HONORARY STREET NAMING DEDICATION!” the late rapper’s wife Tara Davis wrote in an Instagram post. “In honor of the contributions Biz has achieved as an actor, beatboxer, DJ and philanthropist, his hometown of Patchogue Long Island will honor him with the renaming of South Street to Biz Markie Way!” David added that the event would take place on Saturday, September 25 at 2 pm EST behind the 6th District Court at 150 West Main Street.
Porsha had just announced her engagement to Simon Guobadia, who had filed for divorce from her co-star Falynn Guobadia in January, and this came as a major shock to fans.
Porsha appeared to be pals with her new beau’s ex-wife in season 13, and her fiancé reveal sent social media into a frenzy. The general expectation was that everything will be explained in the next season of the show, which made viewers eagerly anticipate its premiere even more than normal. Unfortunately, it appears that fans of the hit reality show may not get what they had hoped for.
