Product Details

Summary

During the golden age of hip-hop, few labels produced as many classic artists and records as Cold Chillin' Records. Among the many artists to come from their now revered ranks is the timeless Biz Markie, the famed "Clown Prince of Hip Hop." Biz's reputation for playful and mischievous lyrics, and beat-boxing skills has earned him a sterling reputation, not just a mainstay of hip-hop culture, but as a television personality and comedian as well. It's with great pride that we at Traffic Entertainment Group have partnered with Cold Chillin' to deliver this re-issue of his most famous album, The Biz Never Sleeps.

More than just a classic in the old school hip-hop pantheon, The Biz Never Sleeps is Biz Markie's biggest success as a rapper. A certified Gold album, it peaked at #66 on the Billboard 200 charts, and #9 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop charts in 1989. It also features Markie's famous hit "Just A Friend", which peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, was named VH1's 100th Greatest Song in Hip-Hop, and has been covered by numerous artists, from Justin Timberlake, to Mario, to jam band Umphrey's McGee and recently featured as the theme song to a Heiniken commercial spot.

The Biz Never Sleeps is considered a standard among golden age hip-hop music, and is a definite musthave for any fan of the genre. Released for the first time ever in an extended format this issue comes housed in a handsome 6 panel digipak and features never before seen photography from original Cold Chillin' art director and photographer George DuBose as well as 12" versions and remixes of the hit singles "Spring Again" and of course "Just A Friend," all perviously never available on CD format.

Comment: There are some good songs on this album. And I don't mean "Just A Friend." Most Biz Markie songs were written by Big Daddy Kane. Kane is one of the Greatest rappers of all time.
