RIP – PM DAWN
Attrell Cordes, also known as P.M. Dawn originating representative Prince Be, passed away at 46.
Family members said he died Friday in a New Jersey hospital after a battle with renal kidney disease. A representative for the hip-hop group confirmed his death to People magazine.
“Prince Be Rest In Peace forever more, Pain from Diabetes can’t harm you anymore,” Cordes’ cousin and P.M. Dawn member Doc G wrote on Facebook. “My Heart is at Peace B-Cuz U suffered so long, Tell Grandma I said Hi & Stay Blisstatic & Strong.”
Attrell & his brother Jarrett “DJ Minutemix” Cordes created P.M. Dawn in 1988. They became just the third Hiphop artists to top the Billboard Hot 100 in 1991 with their smash hit “Set Adrift on Memory Bliss,” which sampled Spandau Ballet’s ’80s classic “True.”
Rest In Peace Atrell!
