Biz Markie Getting some Nickelodeon Cake

TwitThis



So I am doing the normal troll of news websites and I come across this piece
on Biz Markie teaching kids to beat box on this show called Yo
Gabba Gabba on Nick Jr.

Ya'll notice how the logo looks like Yo! MTV Raps.



Here is the Halloween edition with Biz in a costume.

While I am HAPPY to see he is getting cake.

I am saddened to see one of my favorite emcees
dressed up and essentially dancing for food.



Why does he look Roger from Whats Happening?

Is it sad for the Biz or are you just happy that he eatin' ?

As an artist does, taking a job like this affect your credibility?

Or is the notion, if you gotta eat, you gotta eat?

I never seen the show and dont wanna watch the vids right now, but as long as homie isnt comprising his integrity for cake, im cool with it.

let him reach and teach the kids something positive. i remember my cousin called nas wack for havin kids on the "I can" hook. I gave him a wet slap across the back of the neck for that. Aint like its trick daddy havin kids on the hook, then repeatin "baby cause Im a thug". Wrong thing to engrain in a childs psyche.

If he eatin, let him eat. hes always been somewhat comical. And thats a big dude. HE GOTTA EAT


Ghostface album is so serious, from start to finish, Incase you were wondering.

ummm, wasn't biz always jeffin, i mean, clowin in crazy outfits (i.e. just a friend vid)? haven't seen the vids, but dude was always a little off.

Heavy D! said...

It's looking pretty bad, but not "Flavor of Love" bad, thank god. NOTHING is that bad.

But Biz was always a jokester. He was always the one clownin' and having a good time when everyone else was trying to teach and preach. There's nothing wrong with that at all, but sometimes its okay to have fun. We need more of those kinds of artists, especially after today.

I mean, it's better than going the Steady B/Chi-Ali route and ending up in the system.

can you still be called an artist if you're not self employed? i ain't never had autonomy when somebody was paying me a wage, nameen? i sold them my labor and therefore the shit belonged to them. biz ain't no artist. he's an employee.

i mean, at least Biz is getting work, instead of getting shot while sleeping in a car in front of his parent's house like -some- rappers I know...

I think you got this very romantic view of what being 'an artist' entails yo, which is great. But almost every 'artists' creates art with other people in mind, on someone else's payroll or subject to the whims of their "patrons". Art is rarely something done for free, and anyone who's been an artist or worked in the gallery business can tell you that 'the art world' one of the most cutthoatish markets out there.
I mean, when doesn't someone get paid for their craft? Sheeeeit (a la The Wire: new season 1/6/08), the Sistine Chapel was A JOB for Michelangelo; he was just after that Catholic church cake.
