In unfortunate news, P.M. Dawn member Prince Be passed away Friday from kidney disease in a New Jersey hospital. Details inside, plus what Doc G. said about his duo partner.
"I'd Die Without You" and "Set Adrift On Memory Bliss" was on everyone's mixtapes in the 90's. Now, the Jersey City hip-hop duo that may have been ahead of its time, has lost half of its voice.
Prince Be (Attrell Cordes) has died at 46 of kidney disease, and he also reportedly suffered from diabetes. He had been struggling with his health for a very long time, this according to bandmate Doc G.
Doc took to his Facebook page to pour out his heart saying:
Prince Be Rest In Peace Forever More,
Pain from diabetes can't harm you anymore,
My Heart is at Peace B-Cuz U suffered so long,
Tell Grandma I said Hi & Stay Blisstatic & Strong.
Attrel (Prince Be) Cordes
The duo was known for mixing traditional hip hop with sensitive and positive lyrics and melodies (much like Drake does today) over vibed out beats. Definitely a unique sound in the 90's.
2016 has been one of the roughest years yet. Our condolences to Doc G. and the friends and family of Prince B.
