Nice song and it has a shout out to JJFP:

[Verse One: Biz Markie]

This is a story about without a doubt

When I'm done, you will all scream and shout

They always say time is on our side

If it is, why is it a rough ride?

If I could save time or return to the past

I would bring back the good times, hate to last

Like when I was the size of Jay-Z

Back when Ra was still with Eric B

Remember when friends was friends, and LL had a Benz?

And cell phones and beepers was the new trends?

When Koch was the mayor and Reagan was the Pres?

We listened to what other enemies said

[Chorus: Lil' Kal]

I wish there was somethin made, or somethin designed

Where I could turn back the hands of time

I wish there was somethin made, or somethin designed

Where I could turn back the hands of time

[Verse Two: Biz Markie]

I know y'all remember goin to Great Adventure

On Labor Day on the Beach in Virginia

The beginnin of the summer, at Jones Beach

When t-shirts, were ten dollars each

Didn't matter if you had a Lex, Beamer or a Benz

As long, as you had room for, all of the friends

Mr. Softee came through, or the Good Humor truck

When ice cream, was less than a buck

If it was up to me and I could turn back the clock

I'd bring Masterdon, Buffy, and Scott LaRock

So - please listen to my song and rhyme

If I can turn back the hands of time

[Chorus] w/ ad libs

[Verse Three: Biz Markie]

If I could turn time back in a rhyme

I'd bring back Bird, Magic, Jordan - in their prime

Remember the days OH, remember the days

When they had the high-top, fade craze

Want back Big Daddy Kane, Fresh Prince and Kid & Play

"Ohhh, what a beautiful day!"

When parties was parties, and clubs was clubs

You could tell the real MC's from all the scrubs

When havin your own style and originality

And your character and real personality

But I have to go, and off I sign

If I can turn back the hands of time

[Chorus] - 2X w/ ad libs

[biz Markie]

I wish there was somethin made

Bring back Aaliyah! (Jam Master Jay)

I wish there was somethin made to bring back Biggie and Tupac

I wish there was somethin made to bring back Scott LaRock

I wish somethin bad, I wish there was somethin made

to bring back, Left Eye (Barry White)

I wish there was somethin to bring back my man Dahsil Masterdon

I wish there was somethin made to bring back my man Keith Cowboy

My man B.O., my man Step from Baltimore

I wish there was somethin to bring back

all the strange people that I knew that, was a part of my life

(For all of our loved ones that have passed away)

No.. He's not. He's cool and all and he made some cool songs with some nice storytelling, but when it comes down to it he aint the greatest MC realy. He gets a lot of credit for his classic cuts and I think that's about enough realy. He said himself that he is limited on the Mic, which is why he focuses on being a DJ now.

He actually has some great cuts, and some good songs.. I dont think he is one of the greatest because his great classic material cannot be compared with the ones of the GOATS..
