Live Footage: Biz Markie at Summerstage, Herbert von King Park 6/17/15

Last night, I was in lovely Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn to catch Masta Ace and the legendary Biz Markie perform at Herbert von King Park as part of Summerstage’s ongoing summer music, art and culture festival. I got footage of Biz Markie “covering” (if you want to call it that) The Jackson 5′s “I Want You Back” and unfortunately just the chorus to his seminal song “Just A Friend.” (There was apparently a rather strict park curfew and with tons of time being wasted throughout the show and the set, there just wasn’t enough time for it –or Biz was being paid for a set at a very strict length. Regardless of what the situation was, it was disappointing and kind of shameful.) in any case, with all the disappointing and infuriating news, I know i needed to have my heart lightened, even if it were only for a few seconds. And if you can’t laugh with my man Biz, then you really are an awful human being. Check it out below.
