The day before he turns 53, Mark Morales aka Prince Markie Dee has passed away. One third of the legendary Fat Boys, he was one of the first Latino hip hop stars.

In a recent Instagram post about a 1987 tour date with Dana Dane, Salt & Peppa and Ice-T, he reflected:

There is one thing I have learned. NEVER take any of it for granted. I thanks GOD for every blessing I have ever experienced.

Enjoy Dee and the boys getting their food on in Krush Groove:
