iTunes Review

With a cover photograph of 40-year-old Biz Markie sitting naked in an Indian headdress, Weekend Warrior makes clear that Biz is the Peter Pan of rap. He is forever young, or at least he serves as guardian to hip-hop’s fountain of youth. With Biz every listener is given the opportunity to revert back to his or her teenage self, when hip-hop was a new and exciting discovery, a culture that demanded only that we be ourselves. Weekend Warrior reaffirms Biz’s old-school values while also preventing him from becoming a novelty act. Ironically, his experiments in new styles are the songs that sound the most dated. While you have to respect him for trying new things, the syrupy “Like a Dream,” the Timbaland-aping “Ei Ya,” and the bizarre dancehall collaboration “Let Me See U Bounce” don’t quite fit him — like a sneakerhead trying to rock patent-leather dress shoes. The oldest, simplest-sounded songs are the ones that still seem fresh — like an old pair of Adidas. “Tear S**t Up,” “Chinese Food” and “Party to the Break-A-Day” don’t come off like relics, but reminders of the timelessness of a certain hip-hop formula — breaks, loops, and Biz’s inimitably lumbering-yet-funky flow.

Customer Reviews

Biz is the man, lisp and all!

Biz is my favorite rapper and his lisp makes him that extra bit cool.

Amazing!

Wow! The Biz comes out swinging with Tear S**t Up and doesn't let up for another 16 tracks. This is Biz Markie doing what he does best - freestyle fun for everyone. And the excellent beats will keep you moving through the whole disc, even the slower jams like "Throw Back" and "Turn Back the Hands of Time" are catchy and irresistible. Weekend Warrior is highly recommended for anyone that appreciates the musical genius of Biz Markie.

Can Ya Feel it?

Biz has always been one of my favorites. It's not easy to bring back a classic style and pull it off the way he does on this album. His style lays nicely across the newer beats. Impressive. VAPORS FANS UNITE!

Biography

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Biz Markie's inclination toward juvenile humor and his fondness for goofy, tuneless, half-sung choruses camouflaged his true talents as a freestyle rhymer. The Biz may not have been able to translate his wild rhyming talents to tape, but what he did record was worthwhile in its own way. With his silly humor and inventive, sample-laden productions, he proved that hip-hop could be funny and melodic, without sacrificing its street credibility. His distinctive style made his second album, The Biz Never...
