The Amazing Adventures of DJ Yoda [Dolly, 2007]
It's harder when you have to create the songs yourself, but Biz Markie and Tiny Tim help, as do the laugh lines ("Breakfast Cereal," "Tip-Toe"). ***

Fabriclive.39 [Fabric, 2008]
North Londoner. Biz family. Likes: almost everything, selectively, with a specialty in old-school hip-hop. Quote: "Irony pisses me off in music." This mixtape is said to be the first record that reproduces what he does in clubs, which means Gang Starr, Ice Cube, Run-D.M.C., Bell Biv DeVoe and Salt-N-Pepa interspersed with, among many other things, Wylie, the Violent Femmes, baile funk, Minnie Riperton, 2007 Chem Bros and a lot of scratching. Fun. Just fun. A-
