Although he’s known primarily for the crossover hit “Just a Friend,” to categorize Biz Markie’s career on the basis of that song would be wholly unjust. “The Ultimate Diabolical” sets the record straight. As a member of the stylistically diverse Juice Crew, the formidable clique that included Big Daddy Kane’s slick debonairness, Roxanne Shante’s defiant b-girl stance, and the tales of hard-knock raconteur Kool G. Rap, Biz Markie’s clown-prince character more than held his own. Biz Markie’s manic energy and unbridled persona paved the way for distinctive MCs like Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Busta Rhymes. The Biz’s deft beatboxing skills, humorous storytelling, and freestyle finesse are all clear on undisputed classics like “Nobody Beats the Biz”, “Vapors”, and “Make the Music with Your Mouth, Biz.” But it doesn’t end there, flip the hybrid disc over to watch six full length music videos shot by the expert lens of “Uncle” Ralph McDaniels. Through in the exclusive, never before seen photography by George Dubose and this fun and funky career retrospective succeeds in giving credit where it is due and truely proves to be the “Ultimate Diabolical”.
