5. Biz Markie
Major Hit: "Just A Friend" (1989)
Other Hit: "Vapors" (1988)
Calling Biz Markie a one-hit wonder is not unlike calling Leonardo Da Vinci a cartoonist. Although his comedic yet tender ballad "Just A Friend" became a Top 10 single in 1989, it was all his work with the Juice Crew that made him a seminal figure in hip-hop culture. Just try to imagine a world without songs like "Pickin' Boogers" and "Make The Music With Your Mouth Biz"â€”to say nothing of his funky features with groups like De La Soul (who are also not one-hit wonders). So why did VH1 put Biz on their 2002 list of One-Hit Wonders? Guess they must have caught "The Vapors."
