    What up Preme! What chu know about shopping for gear at the downtown Seattle Army Navy store with Biz and Big Chan? Remember how funny that day was!!!!!! LOL


    that story ended up in another thread didn't it? shame, that made me laugh my ass off. find it and repost chan!

    I also met biz that day, briefly - we had a 40 minute discussion about breaks - everything i named he just went "I WAS THE FIRST TO SAMPLE THAT". what even the skull snaps? I WAS THE FIRST. He said many hella funny things. He showed how to make a tom-tom noise by hitting your head and stretching the skin of your neck. I think the suitcase came up too.

    I tried to find the thread where Hawkeye interviews Questlove about the Mardi Gras without the bells to bump it, but no luck. If you haven't seen Questlove go into great detail about this, it's here:

    Consider this a semi-bump.

    I'm excited to see what Sheep has to say.

    I get a random phone call from a couple of excited young white friends. They tell me they got the hookup for a Biz show here in Vegas at the RIO... OF COURSE they ironically want to see Biz. They don't know Biz like I do, but of course I gotta go. Free Biz Markie is an opportunity I can't just skip out on.

    The place is this big empty showfloor in the RIO Casino, a theater that used to be Prince's private showroom, but now it's just another waste of space in a Casino. The Biz is up there spinning a boring drakey chingy jeezy rappy serato set.

    For some odd reason Biz is spinning at about 9:00 for Vegas this is really really early. He's got the whole mouth open / disinterested facial expression staring into a laptop screen. We take a couple pictures, and he lazily puts his hands up to signify he's in the same room with us.

    His Djing sounds exactly like him going through his Ipod on shuffle looking for a song he wants to hear. Not exactly blending or listening to the tracks. Just kind of skipping through tracks. So then he walks off stage for a bit into the audience gives a couple people daps while somebody else gets on the decks and then he just walks out the entrance of the club and leaves.

    The elusive Biz Markie strikes again.

    I did that, it's still there.
    Just found out about Biz's stroke and coma today via instagram. I hope he will recover soon.

    Any new Biz stories ?

    A timely bump for the G.O.A.T thread.

    Let's hope Biz can get better and bless us with some more

    One in a Million. Nobody Beats The Biz! We can consider ourselves lucky that we were on this planet when he was here. These stories should be put in a book together with even more stories we haven't heard yet. "Biz Stories". RIP to one of the greatest and most original people in this thing called (HipHop) culture.

  • With all the stories people shared here I just keep thinking of how the dude was a walking source of comedy and joy even OUTSIDE all his music.

    And charisma! I remember hearing him covering "Benny and the Jetts" in the most out-of-key, mush-mouthed forgetting the lyrics kind of style, just absolutely terrible singing by conventional standards, and the crowd going APESHIT like it was the beatles on ed sullivan or some shit. I still think that's the best version of that song I ever heard.

    When asked if he could play one record that epitomises hiphop he picked "It's All About The Benjamins"

    I've always loved how Elton John was apparently horrified by his version of Bennie and The Jets, as if Bennie and The Jets were some kind of masterpiece

    EJ thinks his own feces are masterpieces.  He takes himself far too seriously.

    And to be fair, I think he's the first to admit it.

    Great Biz stories.  The Earth would be a much better place for more Bizzes.


  • I'm just glad old elton heard the biz make it an actually cool and dope song for him
