Biz Markie, the Clown Prince of Hip-Hop Dead at 57

Biz Markie, the “Clown Prince of Hip-Hop” best known for his 1989 global smash “Just a Friend, has died, and news of his death has infected millions of his fans throughout the world with the “Just a Friend” earworm.

Biz started his career in show biz as a human beat box, and his 1988 debut album which highlighted his beatboxing skills achieved nominal success peaking at No. 90 on the Billboard 200.

The following year Biz achieved superstardom with his monster album which featured “Just a Friend. The playful, silly song sampled the hell out of Freddie Scott’s 1968 song “You Got What I Need”

The video was just as wacky as the song, it begins with Biz and his homies exchanging “Your Mama” jokes and it depicts him wearing a Mozart wig and banging the hell out of a piano like a Liberace on crack. The video achieved heavy-rotation on MTV at a time when not many videos of black artists of any genre were played.

Everybody and their mama sang along with the deliberately (?) out-of-tune chorus, and we didn’t even need to be blissed out on weed to sing along.

Markie wasn’t just a one-hit-wonder, he was an inspiration and a role model to all of us who weren’t as cool as the rap stars of the era like Big Daddy Kane (a pal and collaborator of Markie). I didn’t have the nerve to rap along with the hits of Big Daddy Kane, but I had no problem getting my nerd on and singing along with Markie.

The angels in heaven are beatboxing like it’s the 1980s welcoming Biz Markie to sing along with the heavenly choir.

Eminem’s Anti-Trump Freestyle Rap Silliest Thing I’ve Ever Seen

The only thing more ridiculous than septuagenarian rockers like the Rolling Stones performing and engaging in all the histrionics of rock stars is a middle-aged rapper grabbing his crotch and rapping about bitches and bling.

Rap is a young man`s game, and there should be a rule that a rapper should retire when he reaches age 30.

I didn`t watch the annual BET Hip Hop Awards show, but I caught Eminem`s freestyle rap on YouTube.

It`s the most ridiculous shi* I`ve seen in ages, watching a middle-aged white millionaire clad entirely in black, wearing the requisite hoodie, and rapping obscene anti-Trump lyrics while grabbing his crotch almost made me hurl.

For some reason Eminem gets a ghetto pass from a segment of the rap community, but where I`m from he`s almost a big of a clown as Trump.

Bitch please, you aren`t black and you aren`t relevant, not in the hip hop community and not in the culture at large.

I don`t need a white rapper with a long history of misogynist and homophobic lyrics preaching to me about any subject under the sun.

In the video Eminem stalks around a parking garage with a group of young black men standing silently behind him. In the real world those black dudes would have beat his punk ass for appropriating their culture.

Bitch please, Trump is such an easy target, why don`t you turn your fury on Harvey Weinstein.

I hope Eminem and Trump share a room forever in hell, fuc* those losers.

Watch Eminem make an ass out of himself:

Snoop Dogg Shoots ‘Evil Clown’ Donald Trump In New Video

“Snoop Dogg recently jumped on a rework of BADBADNOTGOOD single Lavender. Snoop stars alongside a cast of clowns in the track`s new video. Of the clip, in which a Donald Trump parody reigns supreme-at one point announcing the deportation of all dogs-Snoop told Billboard, `Nobody`s dealing with the real issue with this f–king clown as president, and the shit that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.` In a climactic scene, Snoop pulls a gun on the Trump clown in a parking lot; later, a chain-bound Trump tries in vain to join Snoop and his accomplice in smoking a blunt.”


Snoop Dogg is the most beloved celebrity in America; he`s adored by everybody from soccer moms to stoners to Opera aficionados to rap fans…

America is one nation under a groove, Crip-walking to the musical stylings of the Doggfather.

I can`t wait for the day when a true believer of the rap God opens the High and Holy Church of Snoop Dogg. The only sacrament observed will be the smoking of the holy herb, and every Sunday will be a high and holy day.

It`s interesting to note that the most loved man in America has nothing but disdain for the most despised man in America, Donald Trump.

We love Snoop for a hundred and one reasons, but chiefly because he keeps shit gangsta real.

Snoop doesn`t mince words when it comes to describing Trump, he calls him a fu**ing clown. In the video he pulls a gun on the Trump clown, ties him up, and doesn`t let him smoke a blunt.

You can be sure that if Snoop Dogg was President of the United States, the Trump clown would be behind bars, the poor imprisoned for minor drug offenses would be freed, and everybody would be enjoying a fat blunt.

Rap Song in Praise of Donald Trump (Easy D) Parental Advisory Explicit Lyrics

“President Trump sent out a tweet Wednesday cryptically warning that undesirables are entering the country.

But he was quickly mocked on social media for saying the federal appeals court considering his travel ban has an EASY D! — which the Urban Dictionary defines as promiscuous women.

‘Big increase in traffic into our country from certain areas, while our people are far more vulnerable, as we wait for what should be EASY D!’ Trump wrote at 12:41 p.m.”

New York Post

Henceforth Donald Trump will be known as EASY D

Trump should trade in his clown persona for a rapper persona.

Here is a paean to Easy D, sure it’s corny as hell, but no less corny than the orange-faced sucka:

Ya’ll know that Easy E was straight outta Compton,
But Easy D be straight outta School of Wharton.

Yeah I knew that bitch named Eric Wright,
We grabbed the bitches pussies by day and fucked the hoes at night.

Easy E ain’t getting coochie down below,
Me I never without a bitch or a hoe.

Tighter than a motherfucker with dem gangsta beats,
Me and my homie Bannon be dicking each other, least that be the word in the streets.

Bitches can’t hang in the streets hiding out in them Section Eight.
But me and my homies living large in the White house, don’t hate.

Snoop Dogg and Hillary Clinton Follow Each Other on Twitter


“Since Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election she has gone for a relaxing hike in the woods, browsed a bookstore and stopped by the grocery store to stock up on cheese.

But perhaps her most amazing move since Election Day took place recently, when she made the decision to follow her loyal fan, Snoop Dogg, on Twitter.

Snoop, the rapper and avid Clinton supporter, has not been shy about his political preferences. In fact, he was so upset by the results of the election that he asked his buddy Drake to help him flee the country and start a new life in Canada.”


Let me start this essay by pleading with Snoop Dog not to flee to Canada, America can`t survive a Trump administration without his cool and calming presence.

Now that Hillary has lost the election and her political career is over, and maintaining a pristine public image is no longer a necessity, she should let her hair down, and stock up on weed, instead of cheese. Her online buddy, Snoop Dogg, can hook her up with the best grass in the world.

I`m not a fan of crooked Hillary Clinton, but Snoop Dogg is my idol, and I hope and pray that he stays in America and continues to bless us with his music.

With Snoop blasting on my stereo, and my  survival kit consisting of the dankest marijuana, I`m ready to survive a Zombie Apocalypse and a Trump administration.
