Editors’ Notes

Arguably hip-hop's most beloved clown prince, Biz Markie is best remembered for his bugged-out but down-to-earth lyrics, relentlessly funky production, and more than a few classic singles. This compilation (originally released in 1994) features all of his key jams from the late ‘80s, showcasing the beatbox standard "Nobody Beats the Biz," storytelling rap favorite "Vapors," and huge crossover smash/off-key sing-along "Just a Friend." The beats (provided mostly by Marley Marl and Biz himself) still sound fresh decades later, and if anything the goofy charm on display is appreciated now more than ever. Tracks like "Spring Again" and "Let Me Turn You On" are guaranteed to lighten up even the most mean-mugging hard rocks, and further prove the Biz's unparalleled ability to craft timeless party rap. Old people, young people, guys and girls, black and white, everybody loves B-I-Z. One listen to this collection and the reason is clear.

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...
