Timbaland’s Former Rap Partner Magoo Has Passed Away

Rapper Magoo, popularly known for his work as one half of Timbaland & Magoo, has reportedly died. He was only 50 years old.

Digital Black, of the group Playa, was the first to post a tribute to his Instagram page to the late rapper on Sunday (August 13).

“Man can’t believe this RIP Magoo damn big bro wasnt ready for this at all #superfriends,” he wrote.

Ginuwine, too, appeared to pay tribute to the Norfolk, VA native (real name Melvin Barcliff). “Times get rough but we keep on pushing just heard some news I hope it ain’t true …I just want everyone to know that time is short love who you love and make sure they know it,” he wrote on Sunday (August 13).

Originally formed in 1989, Timbaland & Magoo initially met when they were teenagers, and decided to form a rap group. Though best known for their single, “Up Jumps Da Boogie,” the pair released three albums and were perhaps best known for their work with Missy Elliott.

No cause of death has been released for Magoo, and neither his family nor Timbaland have officially released a statement.

We send our condolences to his friends and family. May his soul rest in peace.
