Song Of The Day - "The Vapors" by Biz Markie

Song Of The Day – “Vapors” by Biz Markie from the 1988 album “Goin’ Off”

Nobody beats the Biz! Mixing humor, freestyle flow and a goofy sing-song speak, Marcel Hall (aka Biz Markie) broke onto the scene in 1988 with this Marley Marl produced track. Markie provided human beatbox for Marl’s stall of production charges and was featured on records by MC Shan and Roxanne Shanté. Mining the same radio-friendly style as DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Markie struck big with such tracks as “Just A Friend,” “Albee Square Mall” and “Pickin’ Boogers” focusing on what was happening in the suburbs rather than the inner city.
