The Roots Founding Member Malik B. Dead at 47

Rapper Malik B., one of the founding members of legendary hip-hop group the Roots, has died age 47, his cousin Don Champion confirmed.

"Mourning my beloved cousin today," wrote Champion on Twitter. "He was so talented and had a huge heart. I still remember when he and The Roots were starting out. He'd give me and my dad their cassette tapes to listen to. I miss you already, Malik." A cause of death was not specified.

Born Malik Abdul Basit, the Philly native remained with the group from their 1987 inception to the release of 1999's classic Things Fall Apart. He was considered to be an integral member on the Roots' first four albums, returning for guest appearances on later records despite his departure.
