Biz Markie s/d, RFI

Trying to track down a Biz Markie album that's him just kinda playing some of his favorite tracks and occassionally rapping over 'em. In addition, I've picked up Goin' Off and Make the Music With Your Mouth, and was wondering which other Biz albums are worth it (I heard he also did a fair amount of production work worth picking up, like some Grand Daddy IU, but I've never heard it and was wondering whether it was worth the cash/effort of tracking it down.

The Diabolical is dope.

The Diabolical seconded. Probably his most solid album...?

His beat for "The Dragon" off this LP = the second half of Wu-Tang's "Buck 50"

I think the only one I never bothered with was All Samples Cleared...?

Oops, the one I'm thinkin of is actually called "The Biz Never Sleeps" but "The Diabolical Biz Markie" is printed really big on the front.

Just Rhymin' With Biz is amazing and is on Big Dady Kane's 1st lp, Long Live The Kane (and Big Daddy Kane apparently wrote a lot of the Biz's early raps, btw).

WTF my CD copy of the Diabolical Biz Markie is worth $30+??

why is there a collector's market for out-of-print CDs?

There was like a week or so last year where all I could listen to was "Let Me Turn You On" on repeat.
