Paul Costict, a member of the rap group B-Rock & The Bizz, has reportedly passed away.

According to a report TMZ published on Monday, October 23, Costict's family confirmed that he died unexpectedly at his home in Norfolk, Va. There's no word on a cause of death at this time but he was apparently sick before he passed. A family member said that they spoke to the "My Baby Daddy" rapper earlier this week on Wednesday and he sounded like he was doing alright. Costict was 57. Former band member Thaddeus "T-Bird" Maye told the outlet that he will always remember Costict as "a very funny and Kool brother."

For the unfamiliar, B-Rock & The Bizz was known as the first rap group to form in Mobile, Ala. back in 1986, per the New York Post. The four-member group consisted of rapper and singer, Baron “B-Rock” Agee, his brother Leevirt Agee, Thaddeus “T-Bird” Maye and Costict, who also acted as the group's road manager. They signed to the Miami-based label Pound 4 Pound Records and released their single "Do Dat Dance" in 1992.

A few years later, the group struck gold with their smash hit "My Baby Daddy." The song spread like wildfire throughout the airwaves and nightclubs everywhere. It even hit the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song eventually reached gold status. B-Rock & The Bizz followed up with their album Porkin' Beans & Wienes in 1999. However, the group eventually became a one-hit wonder.

Rest in peace, Paul Costict.
