Say the name Biz Markie and most likely you'll end up with someone sloshing their way through "Just a Friend." That those people should be forced to perform "Make the Music with Your Mouth, Biz" immediately afterward and for a room of unforgiving co-workers is one remedy we've proposed to this lack of Biz knowledge. Rather than punish, we're extending another option. Watch the diabolical Biz Markie DJ tomorrow at Brooklyn Bowl.
It's true, Biz is known for singles like "Just a Friend," "Vapors," and "Nobody Beats the Biz." But he's also an accomplished DJ, reflecting his presence in the hip-hop community from practically the genesis. Biz beatboxed for Roxanne Shante. If you haven't heard of Roxanne Shante, get a late pass in the form or a ticket to Markie's DJ set. All others just wanting to listen to a living legend flex his considerable knowledge of genre on the wheels of steel, grab a ticket, too.
