"Have you ever met a girl that you tried to date? But a year to make love she wanted you to wait?" Biz Markie penned these timeless words in 1989 and, well, we haven't heard much from him since. Other than serving as an opening DJ for Chris Rock in his 2008 No Apologies tour, television cameos, and commercials for Radio Shack, Markie hasn't put out much in the way of new material since that amazing single dropped. Yet his legacy has endured, no doubt because "Just a Friend" is one of those songs none of us will ever forget—due to the indelible rhymes, epic music video, and eternal subject matter. True fans should know that Biz first made his mark as a talented beatboxer and will probably be showcasing his skills tonight, in addition to singing the song for which we all know and love him.
