Seems that children’s television is a popular topic around these parts. Apparently, Nickelodeon has a new show called Yo Gabba Gabba! whose title is a Ramones reference and features a segment called Biz’s Beat of the Day, hosted by none other than Biz Markie (of Just a Friend fame). Newsweek describes the show as, “a cross between “Sesame Street,” the Muppets and “Soul Train,” mixed up with a little N.W.A.”
But the best part of the whole article may be Biz’s answer to “Does Biz have a future in children’s programming?” To which he replied “I really want to be the black Mr. Rogers, that’s my goal. I would do everything the same, but with a hip-hop feel to it.” That’s awesome. Why has no one taken him up on this yet?
