A native of Harlem, New York, Markie rose to fame in the late 1980s with his unique blend of beatboxing and comedic lyricism. In 1989 he released “Just a Friend” which became his most successful single after reaching number nine on Billboard’s Hot 100 the following year. During his career, Biz Markie has worked with a variety of music acts such as The Beastie Boys, Will Smith and The Rolling Stones to name a few.
Since the mid 1990s he has worked on commercials, television and film including Men in Black II. From 2007 to 2013 Biz Markie appeared in 43 episodes of the children’s show “Yo Gabba Gabba!” where he gained notoriety for his popular "Biz's Beat of the Day."

Man-u-iLL is a Connecticut MC with some real subject matter, witty lyricism, and an aggressive yet versatile delivery. Though he was once just a troublesome teen lost in the streets taking trips to and from prison, he now is a small business owner, certified audio engineer, and one of the producers of BET's new digital series "Sessions"!
Keeping busy, Man-u-iLL is now focusing on his fifth project "Man In The Mirror" which will be dropping in the next couple of months. Building up to that will be some promo tracks such as this remix or, as he would put it, “MeMix" of Meek Mill & Swizz Beats "Classsic" that will be released bi-weekly every Monday.
To say the least, his numbers don't match his level of skill. Personally I'm more then happy to come across new MCs that are actually saying something which is just what Man-u-iLL is. All I ask is that you give him a chance to make you a fan... You will not be disappointed. To learn more you can visit his website http://manuill.com/
