Pass The Popcorn: Watch The Trailer For The Biz Markie Doc Series 'Nobody Beats The Biz'

Watch The Trailer For The 'Nobody Beats The Biz' Doc

As far as hip-hop's early-era titans are concerned, Biz Markie's name and sound are amongst the most celebrated (and formative) of a generation. It was with Biz that hip-hop's party anthems were entrusted and it was with Biz that true-schoolers learned to let their hear down and just vibe.

The new documentary series, Nobody Beats The Biz, gathers some of his supporting crew to tell the tale of his come-up through a rarely intimate lens, compiling interviews and testimonies from key figures from the Cold Chillin' Records team as well as Grand Daddy I.U.Maino and plenty of others. The series will apparently hone in on Biz's debut album, Goin' Off, which introduced the world to the great jester of hip-hop all the way back in 1988. We've yet to receive a firm release date on the first installment of the doc, but you can be sure we'll have the latest for you on that front as it arrives. In the meantime, scroll down to lay your eyes on the trailer for Nobody Beats The Biz and peep his full slate of forthcoming tour dates to see the man do what he does live and direct.
