Popular Hip-Hop recording artist and celebrity Biz Markie was taken away from us earlier this summer back in July after being hospitalized in 2020 for an illness that was related to Type II Diabetes and he had reportedly suffered a stroke.

In celebration of his art, his life, and his contributions to Hip-Hop, the late rapper is scheduled to have a street named after him in his hometown of Patchogue, Long Island. His widow, Tara Davis had announced the good news via her Instagram account earlier this week.

Biz Markie, who had recently spent his time as a celebrity DJ and spinning records on satellite radio had many hits in the late ’80s and early ’90s. He was part of the legendary collective of emcees named “The Juice Crew” which was comprised of various rappers from the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens in New York City, headed by legendary Hip-Hop producer Marley Marl. His hot songs included “Make the Music with Your Mouth Biz,” “Just a Friend,” and “Vapors.” The human beat-boxer even had a dance named after himself called “The Biz Mark.”
