Records: Biz Markie - Goin' Off 12"s


Nobody beats the Biz! The Juice Crew's Biz Markie is one of the original characters in Hip-Hop. For real, I can't think of another artist that compares to him. The dude rapped about doo doo, picking his nose, rapping on the toilet, liking a girl who dissed him for her "friend", and all kinds of other bugged out shit during an era when bravado on the mic was what made an MC. He even made a hit record using the jingle from an electronic store commercial (check the Wiz commercial below). His debut album Goin' Off couldn't have been more appropriately titled. Add to all that the fact he had the most retarded dance and had everybody doing the "Biz" and I challenge you to think of another artist that was on his own shit like Biz Markie in the late 80's and early 90's. Here are all the singles from Biz's first album. Like I said, nobody beats the BIZ!!
