Hailing from the vibrant streets of New York, Biz Markie cemented his legacy as a true hip-hop icon, a status that endures even after his untimely passing in 2021. While he may be best remembered for his 1989 Top 40 hit "Just a Friend," Markie's multifaceted talents spanned far beyond rap; he was also a revered beatboxer, prolific songwriter, and skilled producer. Affectionately known as the clown prince of hip-hop, Markie's charismatic performances graced stages worldwide, and his presence extended to beloved TV shows like SpongeBob SquarePants, In Living Color, and The Tonight Show, as well as film appearances in Men in Black II and Sharknado 2.

In Episode 6 of the 1st season of Hip Hop Treasures museum curators, Pete Nice and Paradise Gray meet up with Biz Markie's widow, Tara Hall to trade stories and see what treasures they can procure.
