His cause of death is yet to be revealed, but sources speculate his passing may be associated with his ongoing battle with Type 1 diabetes.
Last November, Phife Dawg spoke out about his health issues:
“I am in a good spot, but I have my good days and I have my bad days. But I’m more or less in a good spot, so I can’t really complain,” he told Rolling Stone.
The artist had two projects in development–one being a J.-Dilla produced EP titled “Nutshell,” the other his new LP Muttymorphosis, based on his life story.
Public Enemy’s Chuck D and actor Marlon Wayans were just some of the celebrities that took to social media to express their condolences:
Our hearts go out to his loved ones and friends in their time of grief.
