Biz Markie has no doubt seen many things over a lengthy career that included everything from rocking with the Juice Crew to collecting nice checks for beatboxing on Yo Gabba Gabba. In a recent episode of Celebrity Ghost Stories, the “Nobody Beats The Biz” rapper recalled seeing a ghost when he was a little kid living in Long Island after moving there from Harlem.
“I had never seen nothing like this before cause I didn’t believe in now supernatural stuff,” says the Biz. “I got up in the middle of the night, I came downstairs [to get] a snack. All of a sudden I see some type of airish, ghostly figure. You could see right through it. I’m so startled ’cause I’m a little kid. And, all of sudden, it disappeared.”
The full episode with Biz Markie telling his tale—as well as detailing how he practiced becoming a rapper—aired yesterday at 9pm on the Biography channel, but you can catch it again tonight at 1am. Or, you can stream the full episode, which also features stories from Erik Palladino and Rita Rudner, on the next page.
