Malik Abdul Basit, a rapper known for his work with roots as Malik B., has passed away. He was 47.

His death was confirmed by The Quest in The Roots' Quest and Black Thought in Wednesday's statement, but the cause of death has not been determined.

"We hope that he will remember him for his devotion to Islam and his beloved brethren and his innovation as one of the most talented reviewers of all time."

Malik B. First met the founders of Roots Admirer Thompson and Tariq Trotter - before they were better known as Questlove and Black Thought, respectively - while attending University of Millersville, in rural Pennsylvania, in the early 1990s. By 1993 the group released their first album, Organix, and began to build a reputation for meticulously polished live shows and an untiring table of tours.

Business ethics, Organix quality, led to the second The Roots album, Want More? !!! ??! It received huge support for the brand in 1995. But it was Edelph Halflife, released the following year, that pushed the group into mainstream - both in hip-hop and culture in general.

Malek B.'s last album, a member of The Roots, Things Fall Apart, remains a high brand for band and hip-hop art, winning a Grammy for the Erykah Badu movie featuring "You Got Me" and selling over a million in the U.S. (part of the power of this album) He lived, undeniably, in the exact work of the Soulquarians.)

After his departure, the black thought addressed the division of Malik B. About the group in the song "Water (the first movement)" from theology, referring to drug use and curfew:

It was two things, a night drink, a night grain
Instead of riding on the road, she prefers to relax
I know how happy I am, I don't judge
But I'm still on mission, I'm not in vain. "

Regardless, the owner was b. Guest on three songs from Game Theory, the seventh album Roots, released in 2006. It also released EP, myself, the same year.
