Paul Costict, a renowned figure from the trailblazing hip-hop group B-Rock and The Bizz, passed away unexpectedly at his residence in Norfolk, Virginia, on Saturday at the age of 57.
While the exact cause of Costict’s death remains unknown, a close family member informed TMZ that Costict had mentioned feeling unwell just days before, although he remained upbeat and jovial.
Originating in Mobile, Alabama, B-Rock and The Bizz eventually rose to fame as a hip-hop collective. Established in 1986, the ensemble featured the talents of Baron “B-Rock” Agee, Leevirt Agee, Thaddeus “T-Bird” Maye, and the late Paul Costict.
According to The Daily Caller, the band’s journey to stardom was punctuated by their 1997 chart-topping single “My Baby Daddy.” The track, a centerpiece of their debut album “Porkin’ Beans & Wienes,” not only won the hearts of millions but clinched a gold certification, reaching an impressive number 10 on the Billboard 100.
Beyond his on-stage persona, Costict had multiple roles within the band, notably as its road manager, a detail confirmed by TMZ. However, Costict’s illustrious career was not without its share of challenges.
The famous rapper eventually became embroiled in a high-profile legal battle with his ex-wife, Lasancious. Their dispute over the earnings and rights of Costict’s gold album culminated in a televised episode of “Divorce Court.”

According to The Daily Caller, while some people labeled the B-Rock and The Bizz a “one-hit-wonder,” just last year, pop sensation Rihanna sported a “dat’s [sic] just my baby daddy” t-shirt during her pregnancy, paying tribute to the legacy of the band.
As tributes pour in, Thaddeus “T-Bird” Maye, Costict’s bandmate and confidant, reminisced about their time together, describing Costict to TMZ as “a very funny and Kool brother.”
