30 Biz Markie Quotes from the Famous American Rapper

Biz Markie, born Marcel Hall, was a famous freestyle rhymer known for his unique blend of humor and melodic hip-hop.

His most famous second album, “The Biz Never Sleeps,” made “Just a Friend” a Top Ten pop single.

However, his career faced challenges, especially after an unauthorized sample led to a lawsuit by Gilbert O’Sullivan.

The case impacted the hip-hop industry’s sample clearance rules. In the mid-’90s, the Beastie Boys and other artists celebrated Biz.


While his music releases dwindled in the 2000s, he remained a vibrant presence in entertainment, making TV and film appearances.

Sadly, he died in 2021 due to complications from Type 2 diabetes.

I have made a list of the top quotes by Biz Markie.
