Marley Marl Recreates “Make The Music With Your Mouth Biz”

Legendary Queensbridge producer Marley Marl steps into the studio for an amazing Hip-Hop history lesson via his Dubspot series Classic Recipes. This episode focuses on the story of Biz Markie and the making of DJ staple “Make The Music With Your Mouth Biz.”

First Marley Marl breaks down how Biz Markie made his way to Queens to find him. Then he goes into the formalities (or informalities) of what went into the original production–a truly interesting tale. Utilizing the infamous drum samples from the ubiquitous “Impeach The President,” his patented ghost notes, a deep 808 bump, an Isaac Hayes piano sample and a last-minute homemade shaker rendition, Marley Marl recreates one of the most renowned Hip-Hop beats to date. Students, class is in session.
