Just a Friend rapper DJ Biz Markie was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes three years ago. Doctors told him he could lose his feet. “They said I could lose body parts,” Markie told ABC News. Since then, the big man has lost 140 lbs. He says he plans to lose 10 more pounds in 2015.
Now lighter on his feet, Biz is taking his beatboxing beats on tour with DJ Lance Rock, host of the children’s show Yo Gabba Gabba! Imagine showing up to a 5-years-old party and getting to hear Biz’s Beat of the Day! As DJ Lance Rock would say “Music is Awesome!”
