BiographyOld School hero, Juice Crew member and Comedy Rap pioneer, "The Diabolical" Biz Markie is hip-hop's original class clown and all-around nut. His conversational flows, random moaning, exceptional beatboxing and comical subject matter have delighted listeners since 1986. With classic jams like "Make The Music With Your Mouth Biz," "Pickin' Boogers" and " Vapors," Biz established himself as a true emcee with a very original style. While other rappers focused on self-promotion and bravado, Biz came with the humor, dropping casually hilarious verses over Marley Marl's consistently funky beats. Although he hasn't released an LP in quite some time, Biz is still in action, working with artists like the Beastie Boys and lending his charismatic magic when needed. His timeless hits still rock a party with ease, and no self-respecting hip-hop fan can front on the man's legacy. As he put it himself in 1987, "Nobody Beats The Biz."
