Amoeba Review

BillyJam 05/26/2014

Biz Markie's Marley Marl produced 1988 debut Goin' Off displays all of his greatest hip-hop assets: a silly, comedic approach to a genre often taken too seriously, plus a gift for rhyming, beatboxing, and singing in an off key style - as witnessed on such standout tracks as "Nobody Beats The Biz," "Picking Boogers" and "The Vapors." In hip-hop Biz Markie was an anomaly: an emcee who could be silly and still taken seriously. The Biz came to fame during hip-hop's golden era as part of the Juice Crew. He was the beatboxing rapper with the comedic streak who won the hearts of fans (many who didn't like even rap before) with such songs as "Make The Music With Your Mouth, Biz" (originally a 1986 single) or "Just A Friend" off the following year's The Biz Never Sleeps. In more recent years the Biz may be better known to mainstream audiences for his movie and TV roles, including the beatboxing alien in Men In Black II or his entertaining "Beat of The Day" segment in the kids show Yo Gabba Gabba! But back in the '80s, along with the Fat Boys and Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie ranked among the early ambassadors of beatboxing and as such is credited with getting it respected by the mainstream. His consequent albums - none of which were produced by Marley Marl - 1989's The Biz Never Sleeps, 1991's I Need a Haircut, 1993's All Samples Cleared!, and the 2003 album Weekend Warrior were each good but artistically never quite reached the pinnacle of greatness of his debut Goin' Off.
