THE WMC 2011

Thursday March 10th
RokSteady – 718/305

Special Set by
BIZ MARKIE:
Biz Markie’s career began in Long Island, New York in the early 1980s, where he established his reputation for beat-boxing and rapping. MC Shan and Roxanne Shante were part of Marley Marl’s Cold Chillin’ Records, and Biz beatboxed on Shante’s underground hit “Def Fresh Crew” (1986). This lent credibility to his recording career and put Cold Chillin’ on the map. In the same year, Biz Markie’s debut single, “Make the Music With Your Mouth, Biz”, was released on Prism Records. He released his debut album, Goin’ Off, which attracted a fair amount of attention, largely due to the lead single, “Make the Music With Your Mouth, Biz”. The album also featured the underground hit singles “Nobody Beats The Biz”, “The Vapors” and “Pickin’ Boogers”

Biz Markie began 2008 opening for Chris Rock’s No Apologies” tour. Biz Markie’s act includes spinning records ranging from old school hip hop to Lynyrd Skynyrd and then performing “Just a Friend”. Biz Markie’s play list includes the following: “Children’s Story” by Slick Rick, “Rapper’s Delight” by The Sugarhill Gang, “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson, “Holiday” by Madonna, “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go” by Wham!, “It Takes Two” by Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock, “The Breaks” by Kurtis Blow and “Robot Rock” by Daft Punk.
