Biz Markie
Diabolical: The Biz's Greatest Hits

Biz Markie - Diabolical: The Biz's Greatest Hits

Although he's known primarily for the crossover hit 'Just a Friend,' to categorize Biz Markie's career on the basis of that song would be wholly unjust. Diabolical: The Biz's Greatest Hits sets the record straight.

As a member of the stylistically diverse Juice Crew, the formidable clique that included Big Daddy Kane, Roxanne Shante and Kool G. Rap, Biz Markie's clown prince character more than held his own. Biz Markie's manic energy and unbridled persona paved the way for distinctive MCs like Ol Dirty Bastard and Busta Rhymes.

The Biz's deft beatboxing skills, humorous storytelling, and freestyle finesse are all clear on undisputed classics like 'Nobody Beats the Biz,' 'Vapors,' and 'Make the Music with Your Mouth, Biz.' The package also includes never before seen photography by George Dubose.

This fun and funky career retrospective succeeds in giving credit where it is due and truly proves to be the Ultimate Diabolical. Don't sleep, after all, the Biz never does...
