Too Poetic has lost a long battle with colon cancer at the age of 35. He died in a Los Angeles hospital on Sunday.

The rapper was a member of the Gravediggaz and had been fighting the deadly disease for a long time. He even wrote a song about his struggles, called Burn Baby Burn, which will appear on the new Gravediggaz album Nightmare in A-Minor, which is due to drop on August 23.

Too Poetic’s real name was Anthony Berkeley, a name that should come to rest beside the likes of Eric Wright, Christopher Rios, Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace, to name only a few. Rest in Peace.
