According to sources, Duncan had been on a respirator since he was admitted to the hospital but had begun to breathe “above the respirator,” which is a positive sign.
Doctors had voiced optimism about his recovery, and though he was “fighting like a muthaf***a,” it was not to be.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Duncan. You will be missed.
