With over 26 years in the hip-hop industry, the one-and-only Biz Markie stopped by one of our newest locations at Patapsco Village in Halethorpe, MD to chop it up and do a little shopping. Between his busy schedule with his DJ tour and regular appearances on the hit children's television show Yo Gabba Gabba!, it's been a minute since we caught up with Biz. As a Maryland resident, Biz is well aware of our 65-year history as he reminisced about some of our older locations that he used to frequent, our old-school commercials and signature "your city, my city" tagline.

During his visit Biz picked up two pairs of Nike Air Max 95's and a pair of Air Max 90's and a matching Nike track suit. As usual, his visit was nothing but laughs. We'd like to give a big shout to Biz for coming through and hope to see him again real soon.
