Deep Thoughts from Biz Markie

It's Friday, and we've had a long week of climate bill highs ("They're introducing a bill on Monday! At last!") and lows ("It's probably sorta weak!"). So instead of more news, I will leave you with Biz Markie's special Earth Day rendition of "Just a Friend."

I would venture that "All we need is a clean energy law/But all they're just hearing is 'blah blah blah'" is not his greatest lyrical accomplishment. But, go on, Biz:

I interviewed Biz a few months ago about his involvement with the Repower America campaign. Asked about why he got involved in the movement, he said, "Without the environment, there would be no hip-hop."

Deep, Biz. Deep.
