Diabolical: The Biz's Greatest Hits boils Biz Markie's run as one of the golden age of rap's unsung heroes down to the ten most essential tracks Biz recorded. The big hit "Just a Friend" is the song casual hip-hop fans will know, but listeners will also find a bunch of hilarious and funky tracks featuring Biz's rubbery flow and witty production work. Any hip-hop collection without "Nobody Beats the Biz," "Vapors," or "Make the Music with Your Mouth Biz" is severely lacking and can be remedied by picking up this collection -- or the 12-song collection Ultimate Diabolical that was released in 2007. Either one will do.
