On a regular basis The Biz vs The Nuge pops into my head.
RIP.

I thought when he had been reported dead last month that he wouldn't last long. Sad news.

Here's an oddball and funky performance he did with jazzman Don Byron and his band Existential Dred.  RIP Biz.

Nobody beats the Biz, except type 2 diabetes.

It wasn’t many years ago that when a rapper died the first assumption was that he was shot, now it’s natural causes. How can we lose DOOM, Gift of Gab & Biz in the same year, yet Father MC is still breathing?

Oh fucking hell, didn't realise Gift of Gab had died too. Feel like diabetes has been getting cocky ever since it knocked off Phife Dawg a few years back.

Biz Carkie

There, that's the joke done. Anyway I had never heard of this lad until I played Saint's Row IV where "Just a Friend" is on the in-game soundtrack. Liked it a lot.

Biz Carkie is good. Better Midlands’ was the best pun though.

Biz had the coolest and most distinctly carefree and fun loving voice, it’s an instant draw. You hear that voice and you think, “I wanna hang out with that guy.”

Really lovely post from Mike D on the Beasties’ Instagram here:
