Mark Anthony Morales, known as Prince Markie Dee of the early rap group the Fat Boys and a hit songwriter and producer for Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey and others, has died, according to his manager, Louie "Uncle Louie" Gregory. He was 52.

Morales was one of the group's key rappers, songwriters and producers, and went on to a successful solo career, releasing the album Free on Columbia, which included the hit 'Typical Reasons (Swing My Way),' and 'Love Daddy' on Motown three years later.

How Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's 2nd royal baby will shift the line of succession
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's second child will be born eighth in line to the British throne. The royal baby will push back Prince Andrew, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie. However, it's unlikely Harry or his children will ever see the throne. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced on Sunday that they are expecting their second child. A spokesperson for the couple said in a statement: "We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.
Originally known as the Disco 3, they embraced their plus-sized physiques and made an immediate splash with their self-titled debut album. The group was a highlight of the legendary 'Fresh Fest' tours of 1984 and '85, which also featured Blow, Run-DMC, Whodini and, on the second tour, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. Far from a one-hit-wonder, the group had a steady string of gold albums, with 1987's Crushin (their debut for the PolyGram-affiliated label Tin Pan Apple) going platinum. Morales was also one of the first hip-hop stars of Latin descent.
As Questlove said in an Instagram post paying tribute to Morales on Thursday, "They were figuratively (no weight jokes) the biggest act in hip hop at some point in time. Like the first act that showed this culture might have some real international legs to it. Like they were so dope we just took them for granted. They did dope routines & dance steps, albums went gold & platinum. Did movies & tv & commercials. They explored territories for the first time that today just seems like *yawn* a Tuesday."
After the group split in the early '90s, Morales went on to produce early hits for Blige — including her first hit, 'Real Love' — Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Craig Mack and Marc Anthony. From 2008 on, he worked as a popular radio DJ in Miami.
