B. Smyth Dead Of Respiratory Failure After Long Battle
B. Smyth dead after a lengthy battle.
The Hip Hop and R&B singer passed on November 17th of respiratory failure.
The “Leggo” singer and dancer out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida – real name Brandon Smith – had a long battle with pulmonary fibrosis, according to his brother Denzil Smith.
Pulmonary Fibrosis is described as scarring of the lungs by the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
Their website explains that over time, the scar tissue blocks the movement of oxygen from inside the tiny air sacs in the lungs into the bloodstream.
This causes shortness of breath, mainly when walking and exercising.
Smyth was often called to collaborate with fellow artists, including –
- 2 Chainz (in his 2012 debut single “Leggo“)
- Future (in 2013 with “Win Win”)
- Young Thug (“Creep” in 2015)
- Rick Ross (“Gold Wrappers” came out in 2016)
- LightSkinKeisha (“Ride Good” peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart)
Initially signing with Motown, he released his first EP, The Florida Files in 2013.
The following year he dropped his second EP, Thr3.
Following up that same year, the singer dropped the infectious Twerkaholic, his first highly streamed single, which garnered millions of YouTube views.
B. Smyth’s final EP debuted in 2021, his EP titled It’s Yours For The Summer.
Excitedly, he released Twerkaholic Pt. 2 just three weeks before his passing.
Already it is going viral on TikTok.
Denzil Smith took to social media to break the news of his brother’s passing, posting –
“Today regretfully I have to announce that my brother has passed away this morning from respiratory failure after a long battle with pulmonary fibrosis. My brother was very excited to see a lot of you create challenges for his latest released single #Twerkoholic part 2 while he was in the ICU, it really brought him a big smile to his face.”
“So on behalf of my brother and my family we want to say thank you to all of you for all of your love & support throughout the years. We ask for privacy during these difficult times. We also want to say thank you for all of your prayers. #RIPBSMYTH Love you bro!”
