Prince Be, one half of the hip-hop/R&B duo, P.M. Dawn, passed away yesterday. The entertainer, whose real name is Attrell Cordes, was 46 years old, and is said to have been dealing with complications brought on by diabetes. He died in his New Jersey home from kidney failure Friday morning, according to TMZ.
Doc G, a member of the group who replaced DJ Minutemix (Cordes' brother, Jarret) in the act's later form, shared a short message on Facebook in memory of his former collaborator.
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.
