Biz Markie attended Longwood High School, and started his career in Long Island, New York by interviewing for the documentary “Big Fun in The Big Town”. In 1988 Biz Markie released his debut album entitled “Goin’ Off”, with the song “Make The Music With Your Mouth, Biz” being a hit and attracted a lot of sales and boosted his fan following. In 1989 Warner Bros. and Cold Chillin released his second album named “The Biz never Sleeps”; in this album Markie switched between singing and rapping in the song “Just a Friend” which became the most successful song of his career as it reached 9th position on Billboard and was ranked 81 as 100 greatest one hit wonders by VH1. In 1991 Marie released his third studio album named “I Need a Haircut”, but the album was selling poorly when it was hit by a lawsuit by Gilbert O’Sullivan, who stated that one of the songs of the album named “Alone Again” used samples from his original song “Alone Again, Naturally”. Warner Bros. lost the suit and the album was pulled out of the stores, and Biz’s career went downhill from there because of the negative publicity the lawsuit caused, and on top of that, one of his music videos “Toilet Stool Rap” was labeled as the worst video of the year by the Fromage show. His net worth also suffered during this period.

After these incidents he tried his hand in an acting career, making many guest appearances on various television shows like “In Living Color”, and was also seen in a freestyle rap commercial produced by MTV. He featured in songs of other popular artists like Beastie Boys, Wu-Tang clan and Rolling Stones, and his most popular acting work includes his appearance in “Men in Black 2” where he portrayed a character of an alien in a parody of himself, whose native language was beat boxing. All his studio albums, television and film appearances and featuring on the famous songs are the reason for his net worth. He is still active in the entertainment industry as a TV personality, actor and guest artist for various music groups, and tours with various other artists.
