Biz Markie is best known for being an American rapper in the 1980’s. His hit single,
“Just A Friend” not only was an American Top 10 hit in 1989, but also made the list of
VH1’s 100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs of all time.
The legendary Biz Markie brings more than 26 years of solid hip-hop expertise. At the
age of 14, Marcel Theo Hall dazzled his neighborhood under the alias of Biz Markie. Biz
began his journey to musical anarchy, beat boxing his way into hip-hop heads’ hearts and
delivering humorous, witty rhymes that made him loveable and admired by music fans all
Now, 26 years older and immensely wiser, Biz continues to be universally praised by the
unforgiving hip-hop industry. Biz is the definition of longevity and has managed to
remain one of the most notable artists and DJs in the industry.
