Remembering Hip Hop Legend Brotha Biz Markie

This week, the Apollo Theatre Harlem pays tribute to a hip-hop icon who made our stage his home in only the way a true legend can.

From concerts and appearances starting in the late 80s to the last time he paid us a visit in 2017 at Showtime at the Apollo, every time Biz Markie took the stage, the party ensued!

Thank you to the “Clown Prince” for never letting us forget the fun and joy we find in hip hop and entertainment.

Biz was with us only from April 8, 1964, to July 16, 2021.

Watch the full tribute with some of our favorite moments here.

Rest in peace brotha, Biz.
